Top 10 wines in the Asian media25th June, 2013 by Andy Young
Jeannie Cho Lee MW picks out a “beautiful, subtle wine, with great class” while Singaporean wine blogger Wai Xin CSW recommends a red wine with a “brilliant presentation of spices and chocolate”.
Having attended a Victorian wine tasting in Singapore Wai Xin wrote: “The distinctive point about Victoria is there appears to be no distinct variety. Sounds contradictory, but a quick look at the wine regions will prove this.
“In the coastal regions of Henty, it is crisp Chardonnay, perfumed Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. In Geelong, savoury Shiraz, fine Pinot Noir, pungent Sauvignon Blanc and mineral Chardonnay. Bendigo for Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Heathcote for its Shiraz, Malbec, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. Go deeper inland into Rutherglen and we can see Liqueur Muscat.”
Cho Lee also describes her recommendation as an “amazing white” with a “very long finish”.
