Country: China (Xinjiang, Turpan Valley)
The Puchang Beichun Red is made from the Beichun grape. Beichun is a Chinese hybrid grape created in the 1950’s in an attempt to find a grape that could survive the extreme cold of a Chinese winter. It is a cross between one of the wild mountain grapes, Vitis Amurensis from Jilin Province, north of North Korea, and Muscat Hamburg.
The Puchang Beichun Red has a deep ruby colour with a light purple hue. On the nose, attractive aromas abound with red fruits and rose petals, followed by vanilla and cinnamon spice. The Puchang Beichun Red has a silky and consistent texture with notes of ripe red fruit, dried raspberry, and a touch of wolfberries. The finish is soft with well-balanced acidity. The wine is ready to drink now and up to 15 years.
