or more than ten years, HK IWSC judging has upheld high international standards for wine and spirits in Asia. Award winners represent Asia's tastes and advance the region's wine and spirits culture. There are many competitions globally, but none are committed to delivering culturally appropriate guidance on wine, sake, spirits and beer to Asian drinkers like the Cathay Pacific HK IWSC. Over the years, panels of Asian and international experts have evaluated hundreds of deserving wines and spirits for awards and trophies that specifically acknowledge Asian tastes. This year, entries were received from neighbouring Ningxia, China and from as far away as Kenya and the Czech Republic. Entries were judged first on their own, and then many underwent further scrutiny by judges in the food and wine pairing category, which took place at Royal Garden Hotel where judging was conducted in-situ at several restaurants—Chinese, Japanese and pan-Asian—to match the cuisine of the dishes being paired; it was an immersive experience that enabled judges to consider the sights, smells and sounds that impact tasting outcomes. As well as assessing top-class international beverages, it was also a year for showcasing iconic venues. Judging took place at Hong Kong's striking Maritime Museum, where huge glass windows flooded the space with natural light and harbour views. To add to the drama, a series of storms rolled in through the week making judges' deliberations more electric than usual. When seas were calm, judges enjoyed traditional junk boat sailings with an evening light show and views of the city's skyline. Behind the scenes, the HK IWSC backroom team lead by David Li, carefully planned, organised and laid-out bottles, filled glasses and secured judges' scores. Also critical to the competition's success was the constant stream of fresh coffee supplied by Nespresso which kept judges alert. Nespresso also came to the party with coffee cocktails at official dinners. Each year, Asia's top beverage professionals eagerly await HK IWSC's annual results to inform their drinks lists. In this booklet, you too can discover the trends that will drive this year's selections.

HK IWSC showcased world wines and spirits at Sake Central for its popular 'Test Your Palate' tasting event, giving consumers a glimpse into Asia's hottest wine and spirit trends. A highlight of the competition's event calendar, Test Your Palate invites the public to mingle with experts at the close of each judging day to taste hundreds of competition entrants and award winners. This year, the event was elevated to new heights with a series of workshops held at stylish bar, Sake Central. The Japanese-inspired resto-bar is situated in Hong Kong's iconic PMQ building, where 300 wine lovers were treated to sake and cava food pairing presentations by Sake Central's Matteo Ceravolo and HK IWSC International VIP judge Diego Pinilla, group director of winemaking at Spain's RaventĂłs CodornĂ­u. Held annually, Test Your Palate is a fun opportunity to taste and discuss diverse and exciting international beverages with HK IWSC's expert judges.

Food and Katsuyama Sake pairing hosted by Matteo Ceravolo.


Sense and Sensibility Most sommeliers acknowledge that Asian cuisines, with their myriad spices, seasonings, sauces and condiments, pose an added layer of challenge, but insist that good pairings do exist and are a critical part of the suite of tools used to convert and educate consumers. Eleven years' experience in judging the food pairing category of the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Wine & Spirit Competition (HK IWSC) has progressively shifted preconceived notions about what wines match best with Asian cuisines. Undeniably, it is the sauce— not the protein—that is the guiding factor in many Asian pairings. "The challenge, for the most part, has always been that since wine is relatively new to many Asians, they are afraid to experiment. I firmly believe that to increase wine culture in Asia we must educate people on how to pair the local cuisine with wine," said Nikhil Agarwal, an India-based sommelier and CEO of marketing and consulting agency All Things Nice. Wine enjoyment is not designed to be an academic exercise, but there is science behind what influences our tasting experiences. People's palates are persuaded by all the senses—not just taste and smell, but also sound, sight, and touch. Imagine lounging on a comfy sofa in a VIP lounge, P-Diddy blasting through the speakers, everyone bathed in sexy red lighting. Is it just you, or does this pinot taste more plummy than usual? The mind absorbs all sorts of cues from the environment, and these inform your tastebuds. In 2014, cognitive neuroscientist Professor Charles Spence from Oxford University conducted a psychological experiment that discovered colour and sound could affect people's taste of wine by 10%. The Campo Viejo Colour Lab revealed that red lighting brings out wine's fruitier notes, whereas green light brings out its freshness. Sound and music can also influence people's wine tasting enjoyment. Studies have found that classical music can make people rate a wine as more expensive, and ethnically appropriate music can help bring out wine's

16

SPIT. FALL WINTER 2019

typicity. Chilled-out music motivates people to eat and drink more by encouraging customers to linger longer, whereas loud music increases chewing speed and makes us eat faster—a trick some restaurants use to encourage higher table turnover during busy lunch sittings. The lesson is that wine enjoyment is a total sensory experience—and a subjective one at that—which is not driven by taste alone. Food and wine pairing encountered controversy recently when Tim Hanni MW, a professionally-trained chef and US-based Master of Wine, called the idea of a perfect wine pairing nonsense, claiming it is "arrogant" and makes many consumers "feel stupid". Hanni also argued that food and wine pairing has no potential in China. Wine experts and sommeliers weighed in, commenting online at The Drinks Business (https://www.thedrinksbusiness. com/2019/02/tim-hanni-mw-food-and-winepairing-is-bullsht/) that it is possible to elevate the food and wine experience with the right combination.

One of Agarwal's favourite pairings is vada pao—a deep-fried spiced potato dumpling enclosed in bread—with a viognier chardonnay from Languedoc. "I love pairing Indian food with wines from all over the world. The cuisine has so much to offer. I especially enjoy pairing hyperlocal cuisines with overseas wines." Agarwal also had success with a wine dinner that paired Thai food, a notoriously tricky cuisine to pair due to its complex flavour combinations, with Indian wines. He recommends making wine pairing events relatable by serving street food or regional delicacies. Aromatic biryani with a slightly off-dry rosé, or charred kebabs with medium to full-bodied tannic reds both work well, he said. Marie-Paule Herman believes another approach when introducing new wines to a previously unfamiliar market is to create ethnic associations between wine, food, culture, music and art.


Herman is group sommelier at Maximal Concepts, which operates some of Hong Kong's most popular and exclusive restaurants, including Chinese fine-dining restaurant Mott 32. "Countries like Portugal and Georgia would benefit from showing, not only their country's wines, but also the lifestyles of their citizens through music, food, and the arts," she said. Herman said riesling is the most food-friendly wine to pair with Asian cuisine. "I love riesling. For me, all Asian food pairs well with riesling—dry styles with salty dishes and off-dry styles with spicy ones. Riesling makes such interesting combinations with food."

Another pairing trend taking hold in South Korea is celebrity endorsements, with wines associated with businessmen and sportspeople gaining celebrity status, such as Samsung Group's Chairman Lee, or famous golfer Se-ri Park. But food-wine pairing has the potential to expand South Korea's wine market further, Eun said. "Koreans are meat lovers. Charcoaled meat and Korean barbecue go with tannic red wine and pairs well with varieties such as touriga nacional." Marinated meat needs structured red wine to stand up to the protein and flavour of Korea's soy-sauce heavy dishes, he added.

She concedes, however, that Asia's shared banquet-style meals make pairing difficult, although she doesn't think sommeliers should give up on pairing altogether. "There are certain types of wines and foods that guests would never guess pair well. For example, a food-sherry pairing can alter the tasting experience altogether. I've had a mushroom dish with celeriac and truffle paired with oloroso that was fantastic, and manzanilla goes nicely with fried crab and garlic."

"The launch of the MICHELIN Guide Seoul has increased people's interest in gastronomic pleasures, and I believe tasting menus with paired wines will become increasingly popular in South Korea," he said.

Despite its challenges, Herman said tasting menus, wine pairing, and wine dinners are great ways to teach guests about new wines, grapes, and styles. "They learn and enjoy at the same time. For a sommelier, it is the best feeling ever if guests come back and ask especially for you because you taught them something new."

As Asian food and wine lovers become more sophisticated in their demands, the promise of a food-wine pairing expert alone is no longer enough to lure them to events or dinners. Now, they seek bundled experiences that combine food, wine, décor, entertainment, arts and culture that they can share with friends and post on social media.

The lesson is that wine enjoyment is a total sensory experience—and a subjective one at that—which is not driven by taste alone.

Eun suggests offering mixed pairing menus that include both wines and soju (Korea's popular high-alcohol drink) to introduce wine to South Koreans who are not yet familiar with it.

The trick in Asia is not to get stuck on pairing rules and conventions. Instead, forget constraints, stimulate all the senses, and round out the experience with complementary elements.

James Teng, head sommelier at The Middle House Shanghai, agrees that umami-rich food (savoury flavour) pairs well with sherry, sake, and Chinese rice wine, and says food that has a "cooling effect" on the body, like hairy crab, traditionally needs the "heating effect" of alcohol to balance the body's yin-yang. Overall, though, he feels food-wine pairing is a "western-imported" idea that doesn't ring true in Asia. "For many locals, food and wine pairing is a gimmick. Tasting menus work better in restaurants that serve European cuisine or places where dishes are served course by course, such as French restaurants, but I don't think people care in Chinese restaurants." One pairing trend that Teng says works in China is to serve wellknown labels at business dinners where hosts are seeking to gain "face" by serving guests and clients expensive wines. Paul Eun, wine manager at South Korea's Mayfield Hotel and Nakwon restaurant, said wine culture there is developing on multiple levels: Champagne and sparkling wine are gaining ground from whisky at dance clubs, while everyday wine culture is encouraged by sales of affordable supermarket wines. Eun believes that in Korea, wine can be paired with the seasons, weather, and gender by branding something as a "gentleman's wine," for instance.

Wine pairing should be seen as part of people's lifestyles. I was once served Champagne during a shopping experience at a luxury brand store in Hong Kong, which I think is such a fresh idea. CATHAY PACIFIC HK IWSC 2019

Trophy Winners

The Judges are first separated into panels and are then presented with flights of wine organised by region, area, variety, style, type, vintage, age and so on. All wines are blind -tasted to ensure impartiality and judges are not permitted in the preparation area at any point during the tasting. Judges are provided with score sheets on which they mark their respective samples individually without comment. Once all judges have finished tasting and scoring their flight, the panel and panel chair congregate to openly discuss the scores. If there is any significant disagreement over one particular sample, it may be referred to another panel for a second tasting. Gold, silver and bronze awards are then allocated depending on the product's score out of 100. The highest marks in each category are passed on for a second tasting to compete for the national and international trophies.

Message in a Bottle

Wu Yi Deputy Chief Distiller JiangXiaoBai Chongqing, China

Elliot Faber Beverage Director Sake Central, Saketen, Yardbird, Ronin Hong Kong

Alessandro Angelini Head Chef Dine Art Hong Kong

What is the most common misconception about your job? That distillers can only be men, and that we have a high alcohol tolerance because we drink every day.

What is the most common misconception about your job? I'm very lucky because I always get to eat out and I'm always drinking great things, but that's not as amazing as it sounds. If I don't feel like eating or drinking one night, I can't just say no and stay home—I have a professional obligation. In fact, some of my favourite meals are the wholesome ones I'm lucky enough to eat at home!

What is the most common misconception about your job? As a chef, I don't always cook professional meals outside work. When we're at home or with friends, we just cook simple, comfort food.

What was your first job in the industry? I worked on a production line in a distillery. What are the biggest challenges in the industry today? Changing guest expectations; consistency; and difficulty attracting young people to join the industry. What will 2020 bring? There will be a lot of opportunities in 2020. As distillers, it is our job to produce high-quality baijiu, to make sure every drop is the finest, while we catch up with the times. What is your secret indulgence? Tasting the world's fine wines—I wish to devote all my energy, dig deeper and explore the sensation of tastes in the world, to unveil the full potential of the palate!

What was your first job in the industry? I worked as a server at Earl's Restaurant in Banker's Hall, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. What are the biggest challenges in the industry today? The general public thinking that one style "Junmai Daiginjo" is superior to all other styles of sake. Understanding the importance of proper temperature storage for sake and the notion that it usually is produced to be consumed within a couple of years of production. Sake doesn't age the same way wine does! What will 2020 bring? Increased awareness regarding the diversity of sake, and people enjoying it with food from all over the world! What is your secret indulgence? Ketchup Chips smuggled in from Canada. There's a sake to match them with, too!

24

SPIT. FALL WINTER 2019

What was your first job in the industry? I grew up around my parent's hotel, but I never worked with them. At 14, I began working at a bar; then I went to school to become a chef. What are the biggest challenges in the industry today? Changing guest expectations; Consistency; and Difficulty attracting young people to join the industry. What will 2020 bring? Fine dining is back! What is your secret indulgence? If I tell you, then it's not a secret…


Timothy Goh Director of Sales Vinum Fine Wines Singapore

Rohit Dugar Owner Young Master Brewery Hong Kong

Roderick Wong Cellar Master Galaxy Entertainment Group Macau

What is the most common misconception about your job? Hmm, that we are just salespeople who lack wine knowledge and have no clue about our products.

What is the most common misconception about your job? While there is an element of truth to it, people often think that running a brewery primarily involves drinking beer all day!

What was your first job in the industry? I started working part-time in a fine dining restaurant when I was 15. I recall attending a wine tasting, and I got quite drunk!

What was your first job in the industry? Prior to starting Young Master, I worked in finance and I was just an enthusiast with no direct professional experience in the industry. Homebrewing was my hobby.

What is the most common misconception about your job? That our job is easy and it's all about drinking good wines. In fact, our job involves tasks such as inventory control, cellar management, upselling and service of wines, plus much more. Also, it's often thought of as a profession for males only. I often encourage females who demonstrate potential to consider being a sommelier. Many women have elegance, flair, and excellent tasting skills.

What are the biggest challenges in the industry today? Competition among wine merchants is even greater than before. Independent traders set up shop and their prices can sometimes be slightly cheaper. That might paint a negative picture of large, established merchants. At the end of the day, it always comes down to having the right price. Vinum continues to educate our customers that good provenance comes with a higher price tag. Then, it all boils down to being the cheapest in the market. Tiny margins are sadly unavoidable. Quality of sales staff is important. Apart from having wine knowledge, our industry requires sales staff to have a good client portfolio too. What will 2020 bring? There's so much uncertainty in the global market on almost every continent. This might turn out to be one of the worst periods our generation has seen. So, in view of this, it is difficult to project. Having said that, we should strive hard and never to give up. What is your secret indulgence? I love snacking while reading or Netflixing!

What are the biggest challenges in the industry today? Misinformation: Craft beer is still a nascent industry across Asia and a number of players have started in recent years. Some use 'craft' as a buzzword without truly practising it. Education is key to the industry's healthy development. Anti-competitive business practices: Large players are often able to lock-in exclusive supply contracts, preventing smaller businesses from gaining a distribution foothold. Enhancing sophistication of end consumers will help the industry fight back.

What was your first job in the industry? I have always been involved in wine retail and importation/distribution. But my first job in the F&B sector was Chief Sommelier at Hilton Sentral Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. What are the biggest challenges in the industry today? There are always new wine countries and sommeliers need to keep abreast of new developments in countries such as China and Georgia, etc. Unfortunately, fake wines continue to be a challenge for our industry.

Production space: Industrial spaces in Hong Kong are limiting the scale and nature of brewing operations that can be built. Common sense regulatory changes could help this situation, but beyond a point, this will constrain development.

Lack of recognition and respect for wine knowledge and skill. Often salaries are not commensurate with the additional knowledge required by a sommelier or chief sommelier—we are graded similarly to restaurant employees.

What will 2020 bring? We will maintain our focus on making the best beer in Asia and building the highest quality ecosystem possible around our beers in the markets we serve. 2020 will see us further deepening this drive.

What will 2020 bring? Let’s wait and see! What is your secret indulgence? Enjoying a beer—wine people don't only drink wine.

What is your secret indulgence? A glass of our bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout – Hak Mo Sheung paired with an Arturo Fuente Opus X. CATHAY PACIFIC HK IWSC 2019

The Palate Has It!

2

The Cathay Pacific HK IWSC is Asia's only double-blind tasting competition, which makes it 'Asia's choice, Asia's voice,' but what does double-blind mean? Despite the best of intentions, even professionals find it challenging to be completely impartial. Double-blind tasting removes prejudice, favourable or unfavourable, making it the most honest form of tasting. If, for example, a wine was identified as a Bordeaux first growth, or served from a clearly defined bottle shape, even the most practised judge might be swayed.

26

SPIT. FALL WINTER 2019

HK IWSC prevents bias by pouring wines in the back room, which is offlimits to judges during judging. The only identifying feature on the glass is a number. The wine is what it is—nothing more, nothing less—judges do not know its name or brand, just its context (region, grape, and vintage). This context is important, so judges are comparing like with like and not a French burgundy against Californian zinfandel.

With judges left using only their palates as a guide, HK IWSC entries receive a fair critique. This creates opportunities for amazing wines, sakes, spirits and beers to shine, and for some surprising award winners to emerge.

Roderick Wong Panel Chair "Roasted Goose is a Southern Chinese dish famous for its crispy skin, juicy tender meat and gamey flavour. La Crema Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016 has beautiful cherry and raspberry aromas, soft sweet tannins and a medium body which pairs harmoniously with the smokiness of the goose."

SPIT. FALL WINTER 2019

Mabel Lai Panel Chair "This Northern China street food is meat grilled with chilli and spices. It requires a wine which can stand up to the multi-flavours of the dish. Petit Garden Rainbow Red 18 has intense berry characters and herbal notes of clove which pairs well with the spiciness of the mutton."

Kent Tsang Panel Chair "The "naked" flesh of Tuna (served with wasabi and soy sauce) is done justice with this zesty unwooded Chenin Blanc from the cool Asoke Valley in Thailand. When enjoyed at the perfect temperature of 8OC, the pairing is lifted by the spritzy acidity and touch of sweetness from the wine."

Chris So Panel Chair "This internationally renowned Japanese tempura dish has flaky batter on the outside and umami characters of the shrimp inside. The flavours and minerality of this Riesling enhance the deep-fried aroma of the tempura and brings out the sweetness of the shrimp at the same time. A truly wonderful pairing!"

Thomas Ling Panel Chair "The abundance of ripe varietals in this Shiraz pairs cordially with beef curry. The lush blackberry, ripe plum and black pepper notes of the Shiraz temper the spiciness of the dish while accentuating the texture of the beef and layered undertones of the curry. An excellent match of bold flavours and textures!"

Anty Fung Panel Chair

"The perfect pairing for Hai Nan Chicken is a versatile wine which works with three different sauces – ginger, chilli and soy. Pegeric Riesling 2018, with its purity of fruit and mineral acidity, binds all the components together while low alcohol tames the chilli sauce. A great wine for this dish."

Tersina Shieh Panel Chair Bánh Cuốn is dominated by the fragrant aromas of fresh herbs (mint, basil and coriander). The citrus and floral notes, allied with acidity of Riesling add extra layers of complexity and freshness to the dish. The resulting combination is bursting with multi-flavoured aromas that complement each other, like a perfect symphony."

Sarah Wong Panel Chair "This late-picked Pinot Noir is a perfect complement to the coconut layer cake. It is showing lovely developed notes of a mature Pinot with some earthy, savoury notes. Its residual sugar is subtle and in harmony with the coconut flavours. Overall a match made in heaven!"

Georgia TRACING ANCIENT WINEMAKING TO MODERN TASTES

Georgia is certainly on the minds of many in the wine trade. Particularly in China, Japan and several other Asian countries where 2019 exports are showing huge growth already, putting it firmly on the map in Asia. But why are Georgia and Georgian wine gaining such popularity and attention? It seems what is old, is new again. Following an era of globalisation and mass production, we've seen a recent return to demand for craft products, authenticity and sense of place in food, wine and products. There is no better example of a winemaking nation who fits this mould more perfectly than Georgia. 34

SPIT. FALL WINTER 2019


This Spring, Debra Meiburg MW took a group of Hong Kong and China wine professionals to Georgia to visit the wineries and meet the winemakers firsthand. Starting in the capital city, Tbilisi, the group visited nearby region of Kartli and Georgia's newest official region, Bolnisi. They then spent several days in Kakheti visiting wineries and exploring the region - from tiny, traditional boutique producers who've continued their centuries-old family traditions, to larger modern, internationally-focused wineries. Chateau Mukhrani is a property that fuses traditional and modern. Situated in Kartli region, just 40 minutes' drive northwest of Tbilisi it was founded in 1876. Today's beautiful white Chateau and winery (which began construction in 1873), boasts some of the most modern winemaking technology in the country. Yet, its most recent addition is a marani — a traditional winemaking cellar, complete with qvevri — clay vessels buried underground for wine fermentation, ageing and storage. This symbolises the return to tradition that has been the earmark of the wine renaissance in Georgia.

Vine Pruning at Shalauri Wine Cellar

Kakheti is ground zero for Georgian wine - its most prominent region - responsible for 90% of the country's wine production. The group visited many wineries in the region, including Schuchmann, Papari Valley, Vazisubani, Jakeli, Orgo, Tchotiashvili, Pheasant Tears and more. Schuchmann, headed by Gogi Dakashvili, is one of the most admired wineries working with traditional-method winemaking. They have just opened a beautiful boutique hotel on the property, yet another emerging feature of the Georgian wine industry: a focus towards wine tourism. Georgia's wine heritage has been revived by people such as Pheasant Tears' founder, American musician-turned-winemaker John Wurdeman. It has a cult following and is featured at a small number of exclusive restaurants around the world. John recognised Georgia's unique place in the world and rallied the local industry to return to their roots and focus on reviving traditional winemaking and grapes and sharing this unique wine on the world stage.

Hong Kong Trade Group at VinePonto

While many cultures around the world hold wine closely within their social fabric and cultural roots, most who've been to Georgia argue there is no country in the world where wine is so deeply intertwined in the everyday lives of almost every person in the country.

GIN JUST ADD

By Eddie Nara

Ah gin, the uncomplicated drink of the spirits category—simple to produce and easy to consume. Gin obtains its tart flavour and floral aroma from juniper berries and botanicals. Recently, popular styles such as London dry gin, navy strength and old tom have made way for exciting new styles of distilled and flavoured gins that incorporate delightful fruit and botanical combinations. Gin led global alcoholic beverage consumption in 2018, up 32.5% in the UK and 8% in the world's largest gin market, the Philippines. Growth in Asia was fuelled by an exploding cocktail scene and market premiumisation. Not only have we seen creative takes on classic gin cocktails such as G&Ts and martinis, but there are also premium styles that are sipped neat or on the rocks, tapping into Asia's huge whisky drinking culture. Gin's link to whisky is strong. Many gins were developed out of a need for distilleries to fast track their cash flow while waiting for whisky to age. William Grant & Sons launched Hendrick's Gin in 1999. Legend has it that inspiration struck master blender David Stewart while he was sipping gin and eating a cucumber sandwich in Hendrick's rose garden. Infused with cucumber and rose essences, Hendrick's deviates from traditional London gin into which nothing but water can be added after distillation. Europe does not boast a monopoly on interesting gins, though. Unlike scotch,

bourbon and tequila, gin has no geographical boundary. Asian whisky producers such as Suntory, Nikka, Kavalan and Amrut also produce gin, while in Japan, sake and shochu makers such as Hombu, Sakurao and Komasa have built on successful liqueur brands by adding gin to their product range. Any association with high-quality whisky producers is a guaranteed profile boost for next-gen gins in Asia. Brand owners will showcase gin alongside popular whiskies— The Botanist with Bruichladdich, Hendricks with Balvenie, Roku with Suntory—to win fans. There is no requirement on where to source botanicals for gin, but in an attempt to retain freshness and individuality, Asian gin producers may have stumbled onto gin's own version of 'terroir.' In Hong Kong, Handover Gin uses native Chinese herb Horny goat Weed as a botanical ingredient in its locally produced gin, while artisanal small-batch producer Hong Kong Gin uses the bauhinia flower, Hong Kong's national emblem, to unite botanicals in its Bauhinia Gin. Japanese gin producers also tend to use local botanicals as much as possible. An exciting aspect of this new evolution of gin styles is the creative way in which producers use botanicals and how well they balance with juniper. This year's winners provide a glimpse into what the future holds for the gin category, which is already reshaping bar and cocktail culture throughout Asia.

Beer Craft

CRAFTY DRAUGHTS AND BIG-NAME BREWS

In this year's newest HK IWSC award category, Blue Supreme's bar manager Warren Yu looks at the advantages and opportunities of being crafty in beer-loving Asia.

Beer is serious business in Asia—Japan, China and Vietnam are the region's thirstiest beer markets, and consumption is high in Taiwan and Singapore. Beer is also on the rise in Hong Kong and other Asian markets. Here, zero import tax means there is a wide range of international craft beers on our doorstep, with local breweries flourishing.

Before we reveal the winners of HK IWSC's first-ever Beer Awards, let's dispel some myths about the hot global trend. First, 'craft' does not always mean 'small.' In fact, some United States' craft breweries are far bigger than Hong Kong's largest breweries. Nor does it mean 'homemade'— that misconception can be attributed to its historic translation as handmade beer, or homebrew (手工啤酒). Taiwan's more accurate translation 'carefully crafted' (精釀 啤酒) is better. Like all beer, craft beer is made using four ingredients—grain, hops, yeast, and water—and each ingredient has a strong influence on the final product. Judging is

not just about choosing a 'good' beer, but also understanding how well the beer expresses the brewery's style. To do so, we need knowledge of how the beer is produced.

I began my beer journey five years ago when the term 'craft' was still new to the market. While working as a homebrew instructor and beer taster, I gained my judging certification from HK Brewcraft, a homebrewing supply store and one of Hong Kong's first beer education centres. Now Hong Kong boasts many certified beer judges. Greater education is helping break down misconceptions about craft beer and also generate demand. One of my areas of focus is to attract more females to the category. Traditional beer marketing is heavily male-focused, but with craft beer I see an opportunity to appeal to females. In general, women are more detailoriented and open to well-crafted, high-quality products. The sometimes sweet, fruity, unusual flavours of many craft beers lend the category a diverse range of marketing approaches.

Observing greater demand for beer in Hong Kong, I moved to specialist beer gastro-bar Blue Supreme as bar manager in order to connect with a broader spectrum of customers, spread education and respect for the category, and share my passion for beer. At just 3% of the overall beer market in Hong Kong, compared to 15% in the US, there is a lot of room for craft beer to grow here. Thailand is also a market to watch, with premiumisation on the rise and a growing gastronomy scene. Read on to discover Asia's hottest beer trends and HK IWSC's 2019 Beer Award winners.


CRAFT BEER ASSOCIATION OF HONG KONG TROPHY BEST IPA Young Master 1842 Island Imperial IPA Hong Kong

Judging is not just about choosing a 'good' beer, but also understanding how well the beer expresses the brewery's style.

A bold, powerful IPA with potent hop character balanced by a robust malt backbone. Powerful nose of spicy, floral, zesty hops. Complexity flavour that unfolds to the last sip and lingers on the palate.

BEST WHEAT

BEST SOUR

Artmonster First Love's Scent Seoul, South Korea

Artmonster Blueberry Sour Seoul, South Korea

A sunny weather all-day drinking beer with a bubblegum and clove base, infused with tangerine juice to enhance the citrus flavours – a Belgian Wit with a twist.

Deep pink with a purple hue, the addition of blueberries after fermentation makes for a refreshing sparkling blueberry beer that tastes like it was plucked straight from a bush. The sour ale is fermented with ArtMonster's own house mixed sour culture and a fruity ale strain.

BEST PORTER/STOUT

BEST SPECIALTY

Young Master Hak Mo Sheung Double Chocolate Hong Kong

Heroes Beer Co. Wing Man Hong Kong

A double chocolate milk stout aged in brandy and bourbon barrels. Rich, deep, complex flavour with intense chocolate and vanilla character.

A smashable beer for spring, this tart wheat ale is like a pineapple gin fizz with a noticeable pineapple aroma backed by hints of juniper. This is a beer with assertive acidity, lower ABV, and minimal IBUs.

BEST PALE LAGER

BEST PALE ALE

Brewerkz Bohemian Pilsner Singapore

Young Master Classic Pale Ale Hong Kong

Crisp, flavoursome aftertaste brought out by the wonderful balance between light notes of luscious honey and malt bitterness from the yeast that was specially selected from a famous brewery in the Czech Republic.

A true classic designed to be versatile — drink all day and in all seasons. Elegant balance of malt and hops results in just enough malty richness, paired with a thirstquenching blend of North American and Australian hops. Late additions and dry hopping bring out its delightful fruity, floral zest.

TAKE TEN Talking to Diego Pinilla, Group Director of Winemaking, RaventĂłs CodornĂ­u

You joined the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine & Spirit Competition as the 2019 VIP International Wine Judge. What did you think of the experience? It was GREAT! It was so exciting to taste wines from so many countries, with Asian judges! The experience gave me a deeper understanding of the Asian market and Asian consumer preferences.

68

SPIT. FALL WINTER 2019


Are Asian judges "tougher" than other judges from around the world? I would not say "tougher". However, they are very skillful and have a very clear idea of what they like and also well-defined criteria of each zone and what the zone needs to reflect. The HK IWSC has a unique Asian food and wine pairing awards category. Tell us about your judging experience? The major learning was that sometimes the wines that better paired with food were wines that perhaps as judges we wouldn't have scored the highest alone, which means that we should consider many other features when we are scoring. Do you think Asia thinks about food and wine pairing totally differently to Spain or quite similar? Not that differently, after all pairing "rules" are universal. Asian and Spanish food —if they can be compared— have at least one thing in common: food is more than eating: food is culture. It's no wonder Asian food markets have such an interest for visitors; they are colourful, cheerful, varied, alive and incredibly surprising.

The only difference is that Asian food in general, because of its spicy and bittersweet profile, require sweeter, dense, aromatic white wines or ripen reds. Spanish food in general matches well with very structured reds and not too old whites. Cava and Codorniu have a wonderful shared history. Please tell us this story! We need to go back to 1551 when Jaume Codorniu, who was an heir of Codorniu, wrote a will with a legacy of winemaking tools. Some generations later, his descendant Josep Raventós made the first bottle of Cava in history in 1872. And his son, Manuel, built our outstanding winery, which is known as the Cathedral of Cava, a magnificent Art Noveau building which nowadays is a national heritage. We have been making wine for more than 460 years and we have never stopped looking for the best expression of our vineyards and the best quality for our wines. After all, not everybody has such a priceless winemaking legacy. You hosted a Cava and food pairing workshop at Sake Central during Test Your Palate. Were you surprised by any of the pairings? (And which was your favourite?) Of course I was surprised! There were two pairings that left me speechless: the Shisho oyster with an acidic sauce paired stunningly with Codorniu 1551 brut. And, even more innovating was the Wagyu tartar with Gran Codorniu Pinot Noir, which is a rose cava with more structure. Truly impressive! For guests who have never tried cava, how would you "sell" it to them as a sommelier in a restaurant or salesperson in a wine shop? Cava is a very generous quality sparkling wine made with the Traditional method that cannot be compared to any other quality sparkling because cava is cava. It means it has its own personality. It can be aged for at least 9 months —these young cavas have a crispy fruity profile— and then they can age for 15, 30 or even more than 90 months. The longer the ageing is, more complex and elegant the cavas become, while they manage to keep the fruit. Also, Cava is a sip of Spain, the genuine varieties (macabeu, xarel·lo and parellada) intermingled with international ones (chardonnay, pinot noir, grenache) thrive and blend in amazing outcomes. Cava is must for customers who seek elegance and balance, for those who just want to enjoy delicious fine bubbles, for a toast, for a meal or just to relish. With all these nuances, it is impossible that there is a dish in the world that could not find its perfect cava match. Aside from Cava, which of your other Spanish wines or wineries do you think are best suited to the Hong Kong market? Biased I can seem, elegant Viña Pomal Rioja wines are a treat for the senses for the Hong Kong market. Our wines from Legaris are perfectly backboned and balanced. Our long-lasting experience making Raimat Chardonnay makes this wine a safe bet. And not mention our opulent Scala Dei wines, from the oldest winery in Priorat, for most complex dishes and expert palates. While it was only a short trip, what did you miss most about Spain while in Asia? I feel at home when I am in Asia, and I love Asian food! That's why I only miss my wife, my daughters and my pillow.
