On red alert

Bruce Tyrell, managing director of Tyrell Wines, tells the Financial Times that potential Chinese tariffs on Australian wines are worrying because China is such a lucrative market for the nation’s vineyards (see In Numbers). Australian wine firms have faced accusations of ‘dumping’ from Beijing. Worsening relations had earlier seen Aussie barley exports hit with import duties and four of the country’s largest abattoirs banned from importing beef into China.
