Many years ago I sampled a red and a white from China – for the novelty factor alone they were ‘interesting’. I recall that was about as far as the interest went as ‘rough’ and ‘acidic’ also came into the equation. Of course 8 years or so can see tremendous changes in the vineyard. Now there are 350 or so producers in the vastness of China and as home consumption increase in line with the rise of a middle class, quality will too, especially if they wish to operate on the international stage.

“Domestic wineries are gearing up to put China’s name on the map of wine culture, helped by experts from home and abroad. So get ready for a chardonnay from Huadong, a cabernet from Changyu or a dragon’s seal from Beijing. Or how about a smooth cabernet sauvignon from Xinjiang?”
