Château Changyu Moser XV

Helan Mountain Range Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

£18.00

Introducing the third wine of Château Changyu Moser XV, which offers a phenomenal quality to price ratio.

The Helan Mountain Range Cabernet Sauvignon is a youthful red that pops with the crème de cassis, leather, dark chocolate and mint flavours that the grape variety is famous for. Ningxia’s desert climate results in a higher proportion of skin to juice in each grape, which in turn leads to a rich concentration. So, you’ll also discover notes of blackberry, smoke and iron that will appeal to fans of South African reds. We can’t wait to serve this at barbeques, but it will pair equally well with tomato-based pasta, Chinese black bean or black pepper sauces, roasts, gratins or mapo tofu.

The Changyu Pioneer Wine Company, or Château Changyu as it is more commonly known, was founded in 1892 by Zhang Bishi. This entrepreneurial diplomat imported more than 500,000 vines from the US and Europe, almost singlehandedly laying the foundation for Chinese wine production. It now has premium outposts throughout the country. In 2013, a fifteenth-generation winemaker from Austria called Laurenz Maria Moser V (a.k.a. Lenz), became involved with the company. Together, they established Château Changyu Moser XV, which can be found just west of Beijing near Yinchuan in Ningxia, China’s most renowned wine-growing region. The estate has an impressive Bordeaux-style château, and the wines are cut from a similar cloth. However, with such a distinctive terroir – Ningxia is renowned for its harsh winters when temperatures can drop to -20°C – the wines present what Lenz calls “a unique kind of Chinese spice”. Don’t miss out on tasting these superior wines from China’s oldest and largest producer.
