2014 Harvest Preview

Here a short note what to look for when deciding about your next wine. A summary of published (p)reviews of a selection of grape harvests around the world.

France
After two miserable harvests France predicts a good harvest for their grapes, up to 50% more than last year

Italy
At an estimated 15% lower harvest, Italy foresees good quality grapes.

California
Despite the earthquake that hit some vineyards hard, causing damage believed to be in excess of 80 million dollar, California is expecting a healthy crop year.

Washington
Washington expecting to have an early harvest of record grape crop.

Oregon
Signs of an early ripe and record breaking crop year.

On the Southern Hemisphere where 2014 harvest was about half a year ago.

Chile
Facing a challenging growing season with spring frost, Chile’s harvest is low yield, but the warm and dry early harvest season was good and will generate very nicely concentrated and full flavored wines.

Argentina
Frost has downsized productivity in Mendoza with 40%. However, timely picked white of good quality. The reds contain higher acidity, promising long aging potential.

New Zealand
Large yields and excellent quality for timely picked grapes. Rich berry fruit flavor for the reds. Impressive both young and aged with Pinot Noir leading the way. Very promising.

Australia
Hit by a late frost, the harvest was at considerably reduced yield. Nevertheless, wines of great varietal characteristics for the reds and whites packed with flavor.
