The 2003 Grant Burge Meshach Shiraz is a classic and charming wine, big, structured and well-balanced. Colour and nose bold with very intense nose (black, stewed fruit, coffee) and aromas (white pepper, mint and earthy characters with rich plums and hints of sage and...

La Croix Baraillet 2008 Margaux AOC, the special cuvee of Chateau Desmirail 4th Growth Margaux, gives slightly more power and structure for the class. Nose is similar to the first wine Chateau Desmirail; but this needs more air to level out the apparent high alcohol l...

Alsace Ch Klingenfus, Gewerztraminer, 2011 gives 'longan' nose more than the lychee and petal tones. It is refreshing and put a solid edge to the palate to make it a refreshing crowd pleaser for half dry and medium wines. MIneral finish. Defintely a crowd pleaser. D...

A lively nose of white peach, lemon and green apple, hinting also a bit of almond, smoke and minerality. A fine example of a contemporary Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc. Full, yet supple on the nose with pronounced fruit. In the month, it's as lively as the nose, with crun...

Is Baron de Ley Rioja Reserva 2010 a modern or traditional Rioja Reserva? Seems that this question shouldn’t have been asked at all as there are both elements. Tempranillo give red vivid cherry fruit and plum finish; a pinch of Cabernet Sauvignon adds to tannins, acid...

This was stunning. Beautiful balance, fine bead, and delicate mousse. Faint aromas of pears, and some fresh brioche. The flavor were delicate, clean, and refreshing with a pure beam of ripe pear throughout. I detected a bit of zingy ginger in the finish. Well worth the...

This is a consolidation of the tasting and papers

written from 2006 to 2013. These write-ups had been with the orginal site Wine and Beyond, Yahoo, until the service stopped by Yahoo in September 2013.

 

For years I have been working with wines, either buying it, selling it to wine companies, lecturing and writing about it, and, not unimportantly, enjoying it with friends. If any of the articles on this site are worth reading it is due to my teachers, my mentors, my peers and friends, my students, and in particularly my editors who ignite in me a desire to communicate in wines.

 

Clinging to the trellis of wine, I started to get more and more involved with estates and winemakers, by supporting them with consultancy in communication and marketing. The more I spend my time outside Hong Kong, the more I sense a desire to be part of the international wine family.

 

Writing about wine represents a moment of reflection, curiosity, atitudes and a desire to analyse often hidden structures and history, in an effort to make the wealth of wine accessible to a targetted, and hopefully larger audience.

 

I am not sure if I can wine proivde more accessible to all through this blog. But I am sure to write in wine means being involved in wine and  to remain as impartial and objective as possible.
