Week in pictures: Asia

Going back a little to the beginning of the month and the end of the HKTDC fair, the db team in Hong Kong got to celebrate sales director, Andrew Oliver’s birthday – with a suitable cake of course courtesy of publisher Ivy Ng.

Meursault’s François Mikulski was in town and showing his (frankly delicious) 2012 vintage at importer l’Imperatrice.

James Suckling (far left) and Michael Callahan (far right) with DFS Group’s senior management at the launch of the luxury travel retailer’s Masters of Wines and Spirits collection. Made up of rare wines, Champagnes and spirits, the collection has gone on sale at Singapore Changi airport and will remain there until 28 February next year.

db had a chance to peek inside Omtis Fine Wine’s cellar last week as well, filled with treasures from all over the fine wine world but dominated by Bordeaux.

Wine of the week in a week of top wines, this Savagnin at Classified certainly came close – especially paired as it was with a rather nice cheese selection.

Who’s looking at you? Who indeed? What’s behind the shutter? Antiques probably. Some mysterious graffiti around Upper Lascar Row that caught Rupert Millar’s eye on Saturday morning.

And finally, the Tsingtao-fuelled junk season is officially over and while catching a beer in Kennedy Town, Rupert was reminded of that fact when a flash of old Hong Kong went sailing gently by with its red sails and Qing Dynasty standards fluttering, strangely anachronistic among the super-tankers and modern cityscape.
