Silver Heights Family Reserve Red 2015

Elegant and complex Bordeaux blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot.  Aged on French oak barrels for 12 months, of which 20% was new. Aromatic nose of cassis and herbs. Elegance and finesse on the palate. Well-structured, fruit and oak are well integrated and the tannins are subtle and soft. Emma Goa calls this wine the ballerina of the Silver Heights range.

Food pairing:
For preparations with beef or lamb with refined sauces. Think of stew or venison. Great with premium chateaubriand and coq au vin.

About the winery:
Silver Heights in Ningxia China was founded in 1999, by Gao Lin. He began planting top Cabernet Sauvignon vines sourced from France. His daughter, Gao Yuan (also known as Emma) obtained a Master Degree in Oenology in Bordeaux, France. She interned at several historic Bordeaux wineries, including the world-famous Château Calon-Ségur. The Helan Mountain Eastern Foothills in the Ningxia wine region are situated between the western part of Helan Mountain and the eastern part of Yellow River.
The New York Times’ journalist Gérard Colin wrote about Emma Gao: “She’s considered the best winemaker, with practically the best wine, in all of China, Emma put Ningxia on the map.”
