Tasting Notes

Deep and vibrant dark ruby red in colour. This is a fine, well-structured Cabernet with classic cassis, cedar, and black pepper notes. The pure and intense fresh black fruit flavours are balanced by nimble use of oak which makes the mouthfeel generous and round, and the tannins silky and smooth.

About this wine/region/producer

Most of China’s vineyards lie just north of the Yangtze river. Around 80 per cent of China’s wine growers overall are dedicated to bordeaux-style red wines, and cabernet sauvignon is the predominant grape (China has the largest planting area of cabernet sauvignon vines in the world). You’ll also find pinot noir, muscat hamburg, and grape crossbreeds – made when growers deliberately cross two grape species – such as marselan, a blend of cabernet sauvignon and grenache.
