Blend and Origin
Ao Yun Vintage 2014
Warmer than average temperatures in 2014 led to an early harvest in the northwest corner of China’s Yunnan province, and grapes developed an excellent concentration and maturity. Winemakers found a balance between freshness and complexity in their second vintage, a blend of 90% cabernet sauvignon and 10% cabernet franc.
For this New World red, serve grilled duck breast in an orange sauce with garlic and lemongrass bok choy. Or try barbecued beef ribs in a sticky soy, honey and sesame glaze.
