Grace Vineyard, founded in 1997 by Chinese entrepreneur Judy Chan, is a renowned winery in Hebei, China. Producing world-class wines from its 300-hectare vineyards, the winery has won numerous domestic and international awards. Committed to quality and the wine culture, Grace Vineyard has established a strong reputation, contributing to the growing prominence of the Chinese wine industry.

Inspired by his first granddaughter Anastasya, our founder Mr. Chun-Keung Chan named this wine series, expressing his aspiration for his successors to continually improve upon it. Intentionally crafted as single-varietal wines, this series aims to capture the unique character of each grape grown in Grace Vineyard's different Chinese vineyards. The Aglianico grape, long revered as the "Barolo of Southern Italy", has now found new life at Grace Vineyard. Planted in 2006 in Shanxi, the 2018 vintage yielded 3,171 bottles of well-structured, complex wine with an enduring finish.

Tasting Note : 
Dark red with crimson hue. Red to dark berry fruits, chocolate cake (pastry alike), light earthiness characters shows through on the nose. Full strength palate with well polished tannin texture. Persistent finish.

JS 92 points from JS Wine Ratings
An overlay of roasted sesame, dried meat and a hint of tar to the spicy and racy black cherries and black dates here. Very slightly jammy, but positive. Medium to full body with a good, spicy profile and fresh, flavorful palate. Showing typicity of Aglianico. Nice grip before the lengthy finish. 3,171 bottles made. Drink or hold.” - Tasted on Jan 3, 2022 by Jame Suckling

RP 90 points from The Wine Advocate
Grace is undoubtedly the pioneer of Aglianico in China. With its deep ruby appearance and attractive nose of lifted red and black plum fruit with the trademark violet of the variety, the 2018 Tasya's Reserve Aglianico is both true to the grape and like a plumped up Aglianico del Vulture. This is full-bodied, sporting 14.5% alcohol, but without the very coating tannins of Taurasi: expect moderate chewy tannins, some supporting acidity and an attractive core of ripe red and black plum and red and black cherry fruit with floral overtones. The use of new wood is more evident on the palate than the nose—only 20% new oak barrique here—adding some vanilla and toast. But this is predominantly a fruit-driven wine. With its moderate length and varietal precision, this is undeniably one of China’s most interesting reds that is showing well in the 2018 vintage.” - Tasted on Dec 11, 2020 by Edward Ragg

「帶有烘烤芝麻、乾肉和焦油微味的黑櫻桃和黑棗香氣。有一絲果醬感,但為正面因素。中到豐富的酒體,擁有出色的辛香氣息和清新多汁的口感。展現了阿格里亞尼科葡萄的典型風格。收縮感強烈,餘韻悠長。產量3,171瓶。可飲可藏。」-2022年1月3日James Suckling品評

「Grace無疑是中國阿格里亞尼科葡萄的先驅。2018年Tasya's Reserve Aglianico呈深紅寶石色澤,鼻息中散發紅黑李子香氣和葡萄品種特有的紫羅蘭花香,無疑真實地展現了阿格里亞尼科風格,有如肥沃多汁的阿格里亞尼科del Vulture。酒體飽滿,酒精度達14.5%,但單寧卻不輸塔烏拉斯(Taurasi)。可期待中度的單寧、適當的酸度和誘人的紅黑李子及紅黑櫻桃果香,帶有花香氣息。新橡木的使用較為明顯,但主導風味仍為果香。在適中的長度和品種特性上,這無疑是中國最引人入勝的紅酒之一,2018年呈現出色表現。」-2020年12月11日Edward Ragg品評
