Silver Heights is located on the eastern slopes of Helan Mountain in the Ningxia Region. Grapes are harvested at an altitude of 1,200 meters. Blessed with ample sunshine and a great depth of stony soil, forcing vine roots to venture deep in the ground for water and minerals, the terroir is ideal for viticulture. French oenological techniques are employed by Bordeaux trained winemaker Emma Gao to give this winery it’s old world influence.

BEST TROPHY: 97 points

Judges Comments The future of this wine is hugely promising as it shows a balanced combination of diligent winemaking and fruit handling. Displaying complex aromas of cured meats, black forest fruits, toasted spices and fine oak. The palate is intensely rich and concentrated with perfectly ripe fruits and tannins. The tannin extraction is so precise it leaves an incredibly long and velvet-like finish. Magic.

SILVER MEDAL: 92 points

Judges Comments Bright ruby in the glass whilst displaying aromas of mocha, tea leaves, green peppers and red fruits. The palate is juicy and driven by firm dusty tannins extracted from oak and grape skins. The oak could be better integrated as it pops out slightly leaving the fruit in the background. Nonetheless it has great drinkability.
