Berry Bros & Rudd is to show a Chinese wine for the first time at its spring portfolio tasting.
The red wine from the Chang-yu winery has been made in partnership with Austrian wine expert Lenz Moser. According to Berry's, the Chang-yu winery gave Moser "a free hand to make the best wine he can, and this is his first vintage". Moser also introduced Berry's to a range of Chinese ice wines made in the remote region of Liaoning under the guidance of Canadian expertise.
Other highlights at the tasting include sweet wines from Greece; two growers' Champagnes; new wines from De Martino in Chile; rare bottle-aged semillons from two small Australian producers and ‘Anything But Sauvignon Blanc' from New Zealand.
The wines were primarily chosen by Berry's new wine buying director Mark Pardoe MW.
The tasting will take place at the Pickering Cellar beneath the shop at 3, St James's Street, London on March 20 between 9am and 3pm.
