Shangri -La AO Yun 2014 Gift Boxed
Ao Yun is an exclusive world-class wine crafted in a remote corner of China, the high-altiutde Yunnan region. Ao Yun means flying above the clouds, its vision embodies the spirit of adventure, It is a great cabernet sauvignon, pushing the boundaries of winemaking. All vineyard processes are carried out by Tibetans, without the use of machines. According to Jancis Robinson, « Many wines claim uniqueness - Ao Yun's claim is incontestable ». Ao Yun 2014 shows moire complexity than 2013 due to better climate during the season and vineyard management optimization.
The color of this second vintage is still intense, deep & dark. Regarding the nose, we feel the spice with cinnamon/liquorice, the freshness with mint/cedar wood, the earth with leather/humus, the mineral with graphite/lead pencil and red fruit with cherry/black current. The palate offers a long and polished tannic structure, a myriad of refreshing, fruity and mineral notes as peony, seaweed, wild black raspberryand graphite. A superb balance between minerality/acidity and sweetness/alcohol. This wine will perfectly pair with a roasted pigeon or a braised local beef short rib.
