Some say, the future of wine is biodynamic and organic. Which both sound to me like some new forms of physical exercise. Will my wine be very fit in the future? Will each sip ripple with muscle and low fat? Will my tongue get even more of a work-out from my drinking sessions? Golly gosh I hope not. The world of wine for me is replete with reclining Romans on couches. Symposiums of drinking gents with togas, each with a profound point of view. Shapely women sharing smiles and peals of laughter that ring like Riedel.
The Future of Wine: Biodynamic and Organic
If the future of wine is biodynamic and organic, where will the fat people go? Where will the lushes hang out? What will the extra-large indulgers imbibe if wine becomes a health drink? Doris Day told us that the future is not ours to know. I feel history when I drink wine. That is a very profound statement, if you didn’t already know. Wine from the grape has been with us big-brained monkeys for a very long time. Wine is a sign that we have arrived, that we have reached a state of leisure. To kick-back and drink identifies the practitioner as human.
Predicting the future is not something you want to do sober. Otherwise, aspirations get confused with manifestations, and, looking a gift horse in the mouth is called selectivity. So, fit new wines with healthy environmental credentials will be filling the bottle shop shelves in the very near future. When tasting these wines, you will be encouraged to say, mmm herbaceous, clean finish, pure on the tongue, unpolluted, no chemical after-taste, well wooded but rainforest free, and the saviour of the terroir shows no sign of toxicity.
The future of wine: Biodynamic and organic and built not to last. These wines are, invariably, fresh and young; designed to be drunk in the here and now. Don’t put away these babies for a rainy day, because you will only be disappointed. Spoilage without sulphur. Chemical free means keep me close at hand, and closer to mouth and tongue. Pure fruit flavours undiluted by the tricks of devious winemaking. Naked wines proudly displaying their curvaceous intensity. Don’t leave this young lady on the shelf; deflower now and penetrate with forked tongue. Lift and stretch, really feel it and hold, the biodynamic bench-press is crushing life’s grapes ever so naturally.
