Video: what makes Elgin a special wine region?

In this video clip, I interview Andrew Gunn of Iona, and his winemaker Werner Muller, about what makes the Elgin Valley a special wine region. We also talk about Elgin’s particular talents: the grape varieties that excel here.

  • Jamie, thanks again for spending some time in Elgin and your valuable feedback. One thing you said sort stuck in my mind and I was hoping you could clarify/elaborate. When we were tasting grapes, you mentioned that when you can taste the fruitiness it’s already too late. I filed it away as a off-the-cuff remark and wanted to ask you about it later; which I never did. Is there some science behind picking before you taste the fruitiness?
    Thanks,
    Joris.
