Q: Can you recognises where this photo was taken?

A: Bordeaux?

No, this was a wine first for me. If I say the people in the photograph are Laurenz and Sophie Moser, the 15th generation of the Austrian winery Laurenz V famed for its Gruner Veltliner.

The 66 hectare estate is predominantly planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Merlot and Syrah, the vines are are now 19 years old and the first vintage was 2008.
The Chateau behind was completed in 2013, took just two years to build and cost €70 million, the estate produces 500,000 bottles per year.

Chateau Changyu Moser XV
Cabernet Sauvignon, Ningxia 2015

As for the wine, it's a textbook, contemporary Cabernet with ripe, rounded blackcurrant fruit, smoky, sweet herb and clove flavours and a soft, velvety texture.
This is the second wine from China’s most ambitious estate. Food friendly it will pair well with a wide variety of dishes, both western and oriental. Whilst there is a clear Bordeaux inspired heritage to this wine. Lenz Moser rightly in my opinion, compares both wine and the region more to Mendoza, Argentina than to the Left Bank of Bordeaux.
In the glass the wine has a good structure, the fruit is restrained. Pleasingly the wine does not feel overtly Old World Bordeaux or New World Cabernet rather it should satisfy all camps.

Our verdict, we don’t know of a £12 Claret that creates quite the same talking point, I can’t think of South American Cabernet that has the same cache or that I would swap this for, so go on - give it a slurp.
