Managed and run by the daughter of Mr Wong, the man behind HeLan Quingue Vineyard. After studying in Germany and hearing encouraging feedback from her father’s wine, Wang Fang (also known as Crazy Fang) has come back to her roots to follow her father footsteps - and start her own project. Her winery was built in 2011, and now has 20 hectares. Predominately Cabernet Sauvignon with a dash of Merlot, the style is quite restrained with some blackcurrant, pepper and dried spice aromas. Medium-weight, it has a beautiful structure with a nice texture from the second hand oak she uses. It’s a very pleasing and charming style that’s quite feminine too.
