Chateau Changyu-Moser XV, Purple Air, Helan Mountain East, Ningxia, China 2016
(at London, 25 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2027
After six years of ageing, Changyu Moser XV's 'Purple Air' has started to show its real potential as an iconic wine from Ningxia. Aged in 100% new French oak, including 10% heavily-toasted barrels assembled in Yantai, Shandong Province, the wine has a perfumed nose of roasted coffee, goji berries, dried rose petals and prunes. Complex and elegant on the palate with spiced dark plums, dried herbs and hawthorn, supported by still-vivid acidity and textured, chocolate-like tannins. The finish is red fruit-driven, long and profound.
