Chateau Mihope is located in the prestigious wine-producing region of Helan Mountain, Ningxia, China. It is a well-known winery in China. The vineyard has introduced 300,000 French grape seedlings and hired Professor Wang Zhenping, a grape cultivation scientist, and globally renowned flying winemaker Marc Dworkin to guide grape cultivation and winemaking. They have also imported world-class wine production equipment, aiming to create a high-quality, premium wine brand for the estate.
It has delightful floral and fruity aromas, with hints of lemon, orange, and crisp apple. The acidity is lively and focused, making it refreshing and easy to drink.
James Suckling 90 Points: "A floral nose with orange blossom to the tropical papaya and peach. Hints of petrol, crushed stone and ginger, too. Quite a creamy, medium-bodied palate with bright but round acidity, framed in quite a dry yet mellow palate, finishing with a bitter grapefruit accent. Good quality here, but needs brisker and more austere acidity. Drink now." --Tasted on Feb 5, 2021
