Australian winemakers can expect to sell greater volumes of red wine into China but not so many whites because "white is the colour of death in China", a leading wine industry exhibitor says. Vinexpo CEO Guillaume Deglise said a growing demand for wine from the Chinese should help reverse a slump in Australian wine export volumes in recent years. Speaking in London on Tuesday, Deglise released figures from a study showing that Australia remained the world's fourth largest wine exporter behind Italy, France and Spain.
