Changyu Cabernet Sauvignon, Ningxia 2015, 75cl
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, grown in vineyards in the arid Ningxia Province of central-western China. Here, close to the Gobi Desert, the vineyards are planted at high altitudes so the vines benefit from plenty of sunlight hours and the grapes are kept cool during the nights, to extend the ripening period. Unoaked, this dark-coloured red shows aromas of blackberry fruit backed by hints of chocolate, fresh spice and black tea. The mouth-feel is rich and supple with freshness on the finish.
