Situated in the Dove Mountain Area, in the heart of the Helan Mountain Wine Region, Xige Estate currently owns a total of 2,000 hectares of planted vines. 

As Fine Wine producer with scale, Xige's Philosophy is to combine Modern Technology with the Respect of Nature, to constantly explore the Potential and the Future of Ningxia Terroir.

Founded in 2017 by Zhang Yanzhi, Xige Estate is a young winery that is challenging & leading the development of a New Era of Chinese Fine Wine.  Zhang is the holder of France National Enology Diploma (DNO) and Bordeaux ISVV Winemaker Diploma. He embrace one goal to heart: to make wines that show  "A PURE EXPRESSION OF HELAN MOUNTAIN TERROIR". 

Chardonnay is an adaptable grape variety that can show very diverse styles. As the only white grape variety allowed to make top quality Burgundy white wines, it is one of the very best media that can truly reflect its terroir.

And N28 Chardonnay is another testament of Xige Estate challenging the ultimate expression of the Region’s terroir. This Chardonnay has been fermented and aged in oak barrels for 12 months. It combines both floral and ripe tropical fruits aromas, with a smooth creamy texture, a beautiful refreshing acidity that makes it very pleasant and
easy to drink, ending up with a very long finish.

Winemaking: The grapes were harvested at the optimal ripeness, gently whole-cluster pressed, and then the juice was clarified before undergoing alcoholic fermentation in 20% new and 80% one-year-old French oak barrels. 30% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in the oak barrels and was aged for 12 months, allowing it to incorporate more creamy and honey aromatics.

Tasting Notes: This wine is made from the winery's old-vine Chardonnay grapes, over 20 years in age. The aroma is vibrant, with fresh tropical fruits like pineapple, cantaloupe, and grapefruit, as well as the honey and fresh cream notes from the oak barrel aging. The palate is round and balanced, with acidity in harmony, showcasing the classic characteristics of Chardonnay.
