Gurvinder Bhatia’s True Grape Series Starts in Chile

Alberta, Canada-based wine critic Gurvinder Bhatia was here in Chile last year to judge the Annual Wines of Chile Awards. He not only had the opportunity to taste hundreds of wines for the competition, but also to visit a good number of wineries and get a close-up look at the state of the industry today. He left a true believer, and enough of a Chile fan that he kicks off his new video series “True Grape” with Chile, specifically with Emiliana’s Winemaker’s Selection Syrah 2008, made from organically grown grapes from Casablanca.

Have a look at what Gurvinder has to say about Chile and this mouthwatering Syrah:

    Dear Gurvinda:

    Thanks for your matter of fact, super informative video review.

    Frankly, you need to jazz it up a little by showing more of the local “color” of the people and the terroir plus the local flavor. Background music?

    Jason Mancebo will be presenting a piece on “Visual Storytelling” at the Winebloggers convention in Charlottesville, Virginia starting on July 22nd.

    I am struggling with the same issue myself….how to make wine come alive without apeing Gary Vaynerchuk.

    More juice please on why Syrah grape in this location, yields, how many bottles produced, biodynamic versus organic..pros & cons, how does Syrah rank in terms of total production, how many Syrah labels are there in Chile ….this was a 2008 it is now 2011 what’s new on the horizon in Chile?

    Very Pro look and you’re easy on the ears!

    Cheers
