Hey there. I have some news to share. I’m hosting the first season of a new Wine Enthusiast show, the What We’re Tasting podcast.
Each episode I’ll be chatting with a guest and discussing three wines, organized around a theme, selected by yours truly. For these inaugural shows, I’ll be joined by an editor from The Thuse who will riff on the bottles and talk about their reviews in depth. It’s a chance to get to know a region, a grape, a winery, and a producer beyond the confines of a brief tasting note.
For the first episode I’m talking with Lauren Buzzeo, who reviews the wines of South Africa. (She’s also the managing editor and tasting director.
Some of the topics discussed regarding South African wine:
- New World or Old World?
- Should you be scared of older vintages of white wines?
- Why you better be paying attention to Chenin Blanc.
- Getting to know the Swartland wine region.
- The spirit of collaboration and the Cape Winemakers Guild
Have a listen:
