The week in pictures

This week we caught up with the ebullient and ever-entertaining Chester Osborn of McLaren Vale estate d’Arenberg, who was in town to present the latest vintages of some of the 72 different wines he makes. Over a bountiful lunch at Yauatcha in Soho, Osborn spoke about how dramatically global warming is affecting the wine world. So much so, he believes Burgundy won’t be suitable for Pinot Noir production in as soon as 20 years.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom through – Chester thoughtfully matched his shirt to his dim sum and presented us with the an amazing spinning cylindrical wine label for his Athazagoraphobic Cat Sagrantino/Cinsualt bend, which pays homage to early animation techniques. When turned, it looks like the cat, a homage to his beloved tabby Audrey, looks like she’s walking along beside him.
