LEGACY PEAK CHARDONNAY 2015

Wine Region: Ningxia, China

Grape: Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

Only selected grapes from their own estate are used for this Chardonnay, bursting with pineapple and pear flavours. Lovely texture from the oak but well-integrated, and the tropical fruit is mirrored on the nose. Quite a forward, yet vibrant, style.

About the Winery

The Legacy Peak vineyard is located at an altitude of 1,246m, in the beautiful scenic area of the Xixia King Tombs (Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region), and is one of very few vineyards in China with vines over 18 years old. The vineyard is composed of 6.9 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.2 hectares of Merlot and 0.8 hectares of Chardonnay, all planted by Liu Hai’s father in 1997. In 2010, Liu Hai took over the estate with the ambition of making the best wine in Ningxia. Since 2014, the winery has launched Legacy Peak Kalavinka 2011, which was awarded the prestigious Gold Medal at the CWSA China Wine & Spirits Awards, while other wines have won a number of medals at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards. The wines are exported to Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and other countries and regions.
