Silver Heights vineyard’s new collection “Jiayuan” expresses the purity of Ningxia’s Helan mountain foothills and shares Emma’s passion for minimal intervention winemaking. Fermented using only wild yeasts naturally blooming in the vineyard, the wines show a raw beauty born holistically from our ecosystem. Since the early days, Silver Heights has followed the age-old wisdom of the Chinese “Jieqi” solar terms while also adhering to organic practices. We embrace a philosophy of sustainability.
The wine opens with sweet spice and toasty aromas, followed by sweet raspberry, strawberry and dried cranberry. Delicately framed with crisp acidity, silky tannins and mineral undertones.
• This wine was selected from our best plots of Pinot Noir vines, using minimal sulfur and avoid filtration.
• Aged for 16 months in French oak, 80% new. The wine sees additional bottle ageing until ready for release.
