With its first vines being planted in 2001, this is one of the oldest estates in the region, despite only being built in 2010. This is Ningxia’s signature grape, also more commonly known as Carmenere. The wine displays primarily blueberry, blackberry, black plum and some lifted floral scents. Delicately spicy on the palate, with a certain purity of bright fruit concentration. Overall it’s wrapped up by a complex structure, with a touch of cloves and cinnamon spice from the oak. Only 3000 bottles are produced, this is in high demand despite the steep price tag.
