Silver Heights The Last Warrior White Blend 2020, Ningxia, China

Blended White from Other
Review Date : 20-Oct-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a light green sheen, even colour throughout. The bouquet is soft and lean, aromas of stonefruit melded with citrus, delicate floral and a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of lemon and zest interweave greengage plums, warming spices, vanilla and citrus flower. The palate is focused, flows with good energy on a salivating acid line, along with chalky/ powdery phenolics. The fruit is clean and slender, shows purity, adorned by lifted oak spices. This is a lean and focused white blend with brilliant acidity and delicate spices. Match with steamed shellfish and battered fish over the next 2-3 years. A blend of 80% Chardonnay, 20% Riesling, handpicked, cool-fermented to 12% alc, no MLF, aged in 30% Burgundy oak barrel and 70% stainless steel for 3 months. 17.5-/20 pts (87 pts) Oct 2021 RRP ¥128
