Nestled in the heart of Helan Mountain's golden production zone, Fei Tswei is dedicated to preserving premium Chardonnay grapes and implements meticulous winemaking methods. For various plots, they insist on organic planting and vineyard upkeep. A key phase in the wine-making process is the gentle pressing of the grapes to extract the juice without imparting excessive tannin or bitterness. Low-temperature fermentation can help retain the subtle flavors and aromas of the Chardonnay grapes, producing a fine wine with a crisp, lively character.
Winemaking Process:This wine is aged in French oak barrel for 2.5 months. The high-quality Chardonnay grapes are in good condition under the care of the winemakers. The grapes are handpicked, manual selected and crushed before fermentation in order to produce a quality wine.
Tasting note: This wine is medium yellow in colour. Abundant tropical fruit and stone fruit aromas, e.g. peach, pear, citrus, lemon curd, butterscotch etc. along with vanilla, coconut and toasty notes from the French oak barrel. The lively acidity gives a balance to this full-bodied, creamy texture wine.
