Description

Silver Heights Jia Yuan Pinot Noir 2017

Chinese wines are reaching new heights with Silver Heights. The Silver Heights Jia Yuan Pinot Noir has a bright ruby red and light-medium body with silky smooth tannins. It offers notes of red cherries, dried cranberries, wild raspberries and strawberries with a hint of dried orange peel, liquorice and sweet spices. Closes with an oaky finish. Very approachable and easy to drink.

100% organically grown Pinot Noir grapes. This wine comes from their best plots of Pinot Noir vines, using minimal sulfur and avoiding filtration. The wine ages for 16 months in French oak, 80% new. Following this, the wine sees additional bottle ageing until it is ready for release.

There are two soil types in the Helan Mountain Eastern Foothills wine region: Sierozem and Eolian. Sierozem, a desert soil, is characterized by brownish gray color at the surface and lighter color below, and is based in a carbonate or hardpan layer. Different ratios of gravel, sand and clay within the Sierozem soil account for variations across wineries in the area. Eolian soil is made of wind deposited materials that consist primarily of sand or silt-sized particles. Silver Heights’ vineyards are all on Sierozem soil, with a high concentration of gravel.

One unique viticultural feature of the region is the practice of burying the vines under 30 cm (12 inches) of earth to protect them during the harsh, freezing winters.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Such nice sous-bois and earthy, foresty berries, together with dried orange peel and creamy, classy oak that adds sweet spices. Medium-bodied, but not lacking in texture. Round, transparent and elegant with firm but silky tannin dialing into the tart berries. This is fresh and taut with a firm backbone of acidity that drives the fruit. From organically grown grapes. Bravo!
