Region, Subregion, Country:
100% Chardonnay fermented with wild yeast. Bright lemon color and a medium to full bodied wine with moderate acidity. Aromas of apple, lemon, flowers and a nuance of nutmeg. The palate is beautifully elegant with flavours of baked apple and citrus combining with subtle smoky, toasty oak notes and a fresh long finish.
Founded in 2008, Mystic Island Winery plants five Bordeaux varieties of vines and launched its first vintages in September 2019: Yihu Red Wine 2018 and Yihu Chardonnay White Wine 2018. Both wines have received multiple awards including the International Wines and Spirit Competition and the Asia Wines and Spirit Awards. Wine maker and viticulture expert are from New Zealand. The Mystic Island Vineyard is organised as a series of terraces, taking advantage of the differences in soil features within the Qiushan valley. The soil is a coarse granular sand with granite as the parent material. It has very low organic matter which is suitable for high quality wine production. The gentle sloping terrain provides excellent drainage and natural breezes, but requires more manual labour due to the limitations of the terrain and topography.
