SILVER HEIGHTS

Family Reserve Chardonnay 2017

Aged for 6 months in new Burgundy barrels, this Chardonnay has a lovely pop corn and brioche aspect. A wonderful fusion on fruitness with aromas of tropical fruit, a nice smoothy moothfeel and a silky finish on the palate

Jade Dove 2017, Chardonnay

We loved this white wine ! It has a fresh character with grapefruit, melon and jasmine aromas. And it shows a good balance of fruits, sweet and sour, as well as creamy and toasted notes on the finish

He Lan Hong n28 2017, Cabernet Sauvignon

We really appreciated its very aromatic nose, with expressive aromas of ripped dark fruit  such as blackberry or blackcurran as well as chocolatet. We also liked the oak notes of vanilla that gives complexity to the wine

Chandon Brut, 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir

We loved its deep nose of tropical and citrus aromas combined with a honeyed and toasty character. It has also beautiful notes of fresh flowers on the palate.

Chandon Rosé, 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir

This sparkling rosé has amazing aromas of red fruit such as cherry and strawberry. It has also lovely notes of rose petal on the nose. A good balance between sweetness and acidity with persistent bubble.

Reserved Organic Marselan 2015

It has an intense nose intermixing dark berries and green aromas. And it’s the first time we tasted the clove flavor. The herbal and oak flavors were too pronounced for us.

Premium Collection 2016, Chardonnay

 

Intense nose marrying melon, pear, apricot aromas and elegant oaky notes of vanilla and caramel. Very mellow oaky for a very compelling Chardonnay!

Premium Collection 2017, Cabernet Sauvignon

 

First we loved the ruby colour of this wine. It offers a velvety texture with spicy fragrance and intense fruity notes with blackberry and cherry aromas. The Cabernet Sauvignon of Helan Mountain also has round and exquisite tannins.
