Waitrose are currently stocking this rather nice Chinese red. It is made from the Cabernet Gernischt grape variety, a cross of Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc. I tasted another wine from this producer last year, which was similar in style.
Changyu Cabernet Gernischt Blend 2011 Ningxia, China
12.5% alcohol. Lovely aromatic nose is very Loire-like and supple, with cherry fruit and a leafy greenness that’s really attractive. Sweetly perfumed. The palate is supple and really smooth, with a silky texture and medium weight. Leafy berry and cherry fruit dominate. More Loire-like than Bordeaux, and with a very sweet fruit profile. 88/100 (£9.99 Waitrose, currently on offer at £7.99)
