The TROISIÈME VIN of the château – unique from Ningxia and unique from China, and a revolution in terms of price/quality ratio.

TASTING NOTES BY LENZ M. MOSER

“This wine is a true charmer –  a red wine which deserves the name: shiny red to dark red with a beautiful collection of enhancing aromas such as vanilla, chocolate, a little bit of fresh spice and just a touch of  classic black tea. The mouthfeel surprisingly smooth for a troisième vin, rich and soft, full bodied with a lingering finish. The complexity is stunning as the Cabernet Sauvignon shows roundness and freshness at the same time. There hasn´t been any wood treatment as this wine displays sensational and natural lusciousness – gentle enough to be enjoyed immediately after bottling.”
