Tiansai Cabernet/Marselan 2015
With a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Marselan, this delightful wine displays a bright ruby colour; the Cabernet brings notes of dried herbs, cassis and a refined palate structure, the Marselan provides the aromas of ripe red fruits and warm spices. The combination of the two gives as a result a perfect balanced wine with superb depth and a wonderful juicy texture. A great gastronomic companion.
Tiansai Winery sits at the Southern foothills (altitude 3800 feet) of the Tian Shan Mountains, on the path of the ancient Silk Road (200 BC) in Xinjiang, in the north-west corner of China. Naturally surrounded on three sides by mountains and one side by a lake, the vineyard enjoys long sunlight, warmth and pure snow water to create a perfect setting for natural and organic grape growing, with a surrounding habitat of wild swans, antelopes and yaks. By adopting organic farming and using the most advanced equipment and international winemaking team, Tiansai Vineyards has won “China Best Boutique Winery Awards” successively since 2012.
The chief winemaker is Ms Lilian Carter, who has also been a winemaker for Pernod Ricard.
Since launching on the Chinese market, the Tiansai Winery has won 65 awards from several domestic and international wine competitions, such as “Decanter World Wine Awards” and “IWSC International Wine & Spirit Competition Awards”, which are testament to the quality of the winery’s wines.
