Sanhe Winery is in Huanren region in Liaoning Province in the Southern Changbai Mountain range in the far north east of China, near the border with Korea. The Vidal vineyards are 1km from the beautiful Huanlong Lake.
Vidal Blanc French hybrid from Ugni Blanc crossed with a hybrid variety created by Albert Seibel in the 1950s, valued for its winter hardiness, grown in Canada and USA for production of icewine.
Marmalade, honey, toasted spices aromas and super-massive fruit concentration, superb acidic refreshment with a very impressive finish.
Pairs quite well with a wide range of fruit-based desserts, whether you're serving a banana pudding, a peach cobbler, a pineapple upside-down cake or cheesecake, ice cream and also with soft cheeses like brie and pungent cheeses such as stilton! My word!
And if you want something closer to its home, then why not try it with sweet & sour pork, Szechuan spicy chicken, or chicken cashew nuts...
