Very much an oasis in the middle of the desert, Puchang – located in Turpan Valley, China’s Xinjiang province - now comprises approximately 100 hectares of vineyards which produce up to 130,000 bottles each year. Puchang was first established in 1975. In 2008, Hong Kong business man, Mr. K.K. Cheung purchased the estate, giving it a new direction as one of the first organic wine producers in China.

Puchang focuses on organic viticulture and winemaking with unwavering dedication and care under quality management. It also works with distinctive local grapes to present the taste of Xinjiang terroir. Thanks to the extreme desert climate, this land is almost entirely free of pests. Puchang is certified by ECOCERT as being organically maintained, which is an indication of its fine standard at the international level.

Deep ruby-red. Clean and ripe aromas and flavours of dark berries and flint are lifted by a bright violet top note.Fresh and juicy, with nicely harmonious acidity providing clarity and cut to the ripe blue and red fruit flavours on the long finish. Here the acidity is much better integrated than in many other Chinese Cabernet Sauvignon wines and the fruit is also riper than most.

"A full-bodied red with firm tannins and a creamy texture. Some attractive blackberry and cherry. Chewy with a lot of wood now. A little dry at the end." - Tasted on Jun 2, 2021 by James Suckling

"Puchang’s 2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has a very deep garnet appearance (with only a little orange to the rim). On the nose, this is showing some evolution with some tertiary leather, mushroom and dark soy sauce combining with a core of mellowing, super ripe cassis and black cherry fruit complemented by distinct savory new oak (toastiness, clove, smoke). On the palate, this is immensely extracted and very full-bodied with abundant, angular tannins, some supporting acidity and distinct 14.5% alcohol—although the alcohol is better integrated here than in the 2016 regular Cabernet Sauvignon. This huge structure does have some decent concentration to flesh out the burly bones, but I’m still wondering if Turpan as a unique basin region—underneath sea level—might be better suited to Caucasian and some Mediterranean varieties rather than the likes of Cabernet Sauvignon." - Tasted on Jan 14, 2022 by Edward Ragg

蒲昌(Puchang)位於中國新疆省吐魯番盆地,宛如沙漠中的一個綠洲。現在,普昌擁有約100公頃的葡萄園,每年生產多達13萬瓶葡萄酒。普昌成立於1975年。2008年,香港商人張家強先生(K.K. Cheung)購買了這座莊園,使其成為中國最早的有機葡萄酒生產商之一,為其注入了新的發展方向。

“這款酒是一款酒體飽滿的紅葡萄酒,單寧結實,質地豐潤。一些迷人的黑莓和櫻桃味道。咀嚼感很強,有很多木材的味道。收結稍微乾燥。” - James Suckling於2021年6月2日品評

“蒲昌莊園2016年份特級赤霞珠紅葡萄酒呈現出非常深的石榴紅色(邊緣只有一點橘色)。在氣味上,這款酒已經出現了一些演變,有些三獸皮、蘑菇和醬油的味道與逐漸成熟的黑醋栗和黑櫻桃果實相結合,還有明顯的鹹香新橡木(烤麵包、丁香、煙熏)。口感上,這款酒非常濃縮,酒體非常豐滿,單寧豐富而角度分明,一些支持性的酸度和獨特的14.5%酒精度—儘管酒精在這款2016年普通赤霞珠葡萄酒中融合得更好。這種巨大的結構確實具有一些不錯的濃度,能夠豐富粗獷的結構,但我仍然在想,位於海平面以下的獨特盆地地區——吐魯番是否更適合高加索和地中海地區的品種,而不是赤霞珠葡萄酒。” - Edward Ragg於2022年1月14日品評
