Chateau Changyu Moser XV White Cabernet Ningxia 2015
Chateau Changyu Moser XV lies just west of Beijing in the province of Ningxia, China’s most renowned wine-growing region. With famed Austrian winemaker Lenz Moser V at the helm, the estate has launched full steam ahead into the international market. Opened officially in 2013, the winery belongs to the Changyu wine empire. Changyu Pioneer was China’s very first winery and now forms a group with multiple sites across China. Every stage of wine production at Chateau Changyu Moser XV takes place at the chateau, from pressing, fermentation and maturation. The site even has its own museum, showcasing Chinese winemaking history.
The colour of this Cabernet comes with a hue of rosé, just a touch to indicate its provenance. Surprisingly peachy on the nose with a cornucopia of floral aromas – it certainly enlarges the spectrum offragrance in wine. On the palate it offers a stunning lusciousness of peach and exotic fruits with a hint of violet. The vibrancy comes from its perfectly embedded acidity.
It has a new quality of being a perfect companion to most foods and serves extremely well as a cocktail.
