Chinese wine wins accolade

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A CHINESE wine won the International Trophy for the Best Red Bordeaux Varietal Over GBP10 at the Decanter World Wine Awards in London last week. Winery He Lan Qing Xue’s Jia Bei Lan 2009 Cabernet blend beat off more celebrated French and New World counterparts. The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Gernicht, and is sold only in China at present, retailing for around GBP13 (USD20.80) per bottle. It is produced in Ningxia, an area that, according to Decanter, has “been rapidly improving in past years”. China was not the only unlikely country to win accolades – Japan, India and Thailand won silver and gold medals across other categories. Argentina finished top of the medal table with six trophies, with France, New Zealand and Portugal winning three each, and Australia two.
