Deep garnet with a ruby rim and a tomato and hawthorn fruit palate. Medium bodied with stand-out tannins, balanced with good acidity, with elegant cherry and plum fruits following to the finish. It is a wine that can age; A good match with chicken or duck dishes.
Another quality wine with a good story behind it. The Chinese name ('the mountain of blindness and fortune'), as well as the producing region, should immediately attract the attention of wine lovers. In fact, the winemaker is blind. Yes, I'm just as curious as you-shall we all pay the mysterious winery a visit?
