Hejinzun Winery is one of the six producers designated by the Ningxia wine bureau to make wines under the regional brand ‘Helan Hong’. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Marselan, this wine has a creamy vanilla nose, plus cocoa powder, stewed fruits and cherry liqueur notes. Violet and ripe black berry flavours are spiced by cedar box from 12-month oak aging, supported by a decent tannin backbone.
