Everything I wrote in September
September 2019 was my second full month living in Singapore (the picture shows Deepavali decorations in Little India) , where I am continuing to settle in and getting to know the wine trade. While there are far fewer trade tastings of the type that London is overloaded with, I have found plenty of activity to keep me going, including attending several winemaker dinners, observing a WSET Diploma sparkling wine session, several social events with local wine lovers, and lunches with various industry bigwigs.
This next few months involves nearly 30 days of travelling, first to the Rhône for my annual tasting of the latest vintage for jancisrobinson.com; then to Sydney and Adelaide.
In the meantime, here’s everything I wrote in September:

My monthly Hemming in Asia column peeked into the mechanics of the wine trade here (free to read)
63 tasting notes on white wines from the northern Rhône in 2017 (subscription needed)
… and 82 tasting notes on the equivalent reds (subscription needed)
… not forgetting the southern Rhône, with 57 tasting notes on reds and whites, again all from the 2017 vintage (subscription needed)
Plus, a companion article investigating the southern Rhône’s lesser-known terroirs (subscription needed)
