Tesco, the largest retailer in the world, will be adding Chinese wine in its selection.

China is now producing Cabernet Sauvignon and aims to attract the large wine-drinking market in Britain.

China's Cabernet Sauvignon is called Chateau Changyu Moser XV and only sells for less than £10. The British retailers' master of wine James Davis said that China's presence in the wine market is crucial in making the English wine market push forward.

He said, "China is one of the world's biggest consumers of wine, drinking almost two billion bottles of red wine each year. And now they are one of the largest wine-producing countries in the world, ahead of the more traditional regions of Chile and New Zealand."

Davis added: "Produced in a warm and dry climate, the Chateau Changyu Moser XV Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is a dark ruby red. The smooth, full bodied wine is a combination of a classic Bordeaux style with the riper, richer fruit flavors which are characteristic of Australian wines."

The wine master said that the Chinese red wine is affordable and has a unique and quality taste.

According to the China Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands, the Chinese consumed 131.9 million cases of red wine in 2015. The buying power of China's young generation is seen to bolster the number even more.

China is seen to consume 4 billion bottles of wine by the end of 2017.

The commerce organization reported on their website that, in 2015, wine sales in China were worth 78 billion yuan, with imported wines accounting for 26 billion yuan.

According to government data, the overall liquor sales in China was more than 1 trillion yuan in 2016.

The organization also said that 60 percent of Chinese who were born after 1990 will have a spending income of $200 million.
