Wealthy Chinese are famous for their preference for high-end Bordeaux wines, even if the food pairings with this classic are sometimes questionable.

Other, bigger-volume producers also are hoping to export more into China.  And in Australia, reports the same source, financially-stressed growers are hoping the Chinese will come buy the vineyards themselves.
