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 10 months, then transfer to bottle ageing for 6 months. The high-quality 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: The wine is deep ruby red, with intense aromas with black plum and blackberry alongside with vanilla, coffee bean and smoke from the barrel ageing. It’s a full body, balanced and long finished wine.
