Just a note to readers. I have deleted the post I made commenting on Victoria Moore’s Telegraph article on the Chinese wine that won a trophy in the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA).
I apologise to all of you who took the time to comment. There were some excellent comments, but I feel we have had the discussion, and short of actually tasting the wine there is no more to say for now.
It got messy, and it upset people. I have no wish to upset people.
Also, I am a Panel Chair for the International Wine Challenge, a competitor to the DWWA. So it’s probably best for me not to comment on this matter any further.
I would love to get a chance to taste the award-winning wine.
