Description
 
Very much an oasis in the middle of the desert, Puchang – located in Turpan Valley, China’s Xinjiang province - now comprises approximately 100 hectares of vineyards which produce up to 130,000 bottles each year. Puchang was first established in 1975. In 2008, Hong Kong business man, Mr. K.K. Cheung purchased the estate, giving it a new direction as one of the first organic wine producers in China. Puchang focuses on organic viticulture and winemaking with unwavering dedication and care under quality management. It also works with distinctive local grapes to present the taste of Xinjiang terroir. Thanks to the extreme desert climate, this land is almost entirely free of pests. Puchang is certified by ECOCERT as being organically maintained, which is an indication of its fine standard at the international level.

The 2017 Rkatsiteli has a medium lemon appearance with an attractive nose of ripe russet pear, quince, lime peel, peach and other stone fruit with a touch of white flower. Medium to full-bodied with bright acidity and some textural lees on the palate, the 13.5% alcohol is well-integrated. This is pure and precise with no unwanted phenolics. There is marked concentration on the palate with distinct red pear, quince, peach and that hint of lime with a touch of further floral complexity. It has moderate to longer length with a subtle and rounded but bright finish. This is a bit more refined than the 2016. One of China's best expressions of this variety! Wine Advocate 92 (2017)
