New Year Wine（看云起）
Vineyard Region : Shanxi & Ningxia
Grape Variety : 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Length/Type of Fermentation :
25% of the wine undergo Carbonic maceration to create this easy going & fun wine to drink. Each year we employed different percentage of Carbonic maceration in this wine. The idea is to make this as a signature style that we want our friend to remember every year they receive the wine over CNY.
Length/Type of Aging : Unoak / did not undergo extended period of oak age. Small portion of the fruits were complete fermented in neutral barrel.
Tasting Note : Fruit driven -- cherry, strawberry, chewing gum (a-like) & banana are the signature character for this wine each year when they consume young, says within 6 to 10 months after bottling. It is soft, fruit driven and easy on the palate with good length. Drink now don’t hold and enjoy the youthful characteristic of this wine! Cheers!
Chinese New Year is a special time for us at Grace Vineyard, as we contemplate the snowy vineyards surrounded by the warmth of family and friends. In celebration and thanks, we want to let our friends join us in tasting the new vintage, almost like an invitation to a movie preview.
