Ao Yun Red Blend
From the Maker:
This deep garnet colored wine is dense and perfumed on the nose, offering aromas of cassis, thyme and violet. It is bright at first sip, quickly followed by luxurious tannins that settle in quickly and back off, allowing bold acidity to reign. Lush fruit flavors of black cherry and dark plum are joined by notes of oregano, rosemary, lavender and thyme with a strong vein of minerality. Drink through 2034
About the Maker:
Ao Yun was born from a vision to create something that truly elevates the soul. A life-enhancing, world-class wine– completely new, yet timeless.
Grapes grown in ancient soil; a terroir steeped in history and tradition. A place that honours the quiet dignity of humans working at one with nature. A high plateau nestled among the Himalayan peaks, reaching for dreams in the sky, grounded by the hallowed earth. A wine shaped by generations of precious knowledge blended with forward-thinking, worldly attitudes.
Ao Yun means "flying above the clouds" or "roaming above the clouds." The name refers to the thick, wandering clouds of this incredible region and celebrates the birthplace of the legend of Shangri-La. Hidden paradise among the Himalayan Mountains. The vineyards are located just below the sacred Meili Mountain at altitudes soaring to 8,530 feet in height, to allow the Cabernet Sauvignon to give its finest expression of a unique terroir. Ao Yun is made from 314 blocks on 68.4ac of vineyards. All viniculture processes are conducted entirely by hand.
Ao Yun celebrates the visionary, the iconoclastic, the brave and the singular. Our continuous quest to reimagine what’s possible defines the very notion of luxury — extraordinary, exceptional and rare.
