Changyu White Cabernet 2017

China’s Château Changyu-Moser XV has launched what it claims is the world’s first white Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French barriques. Lenz Moser, chief winemaker at the Ningxia estate, made the wine, which spends a year in French oak, using the free-run juice of small, thick-skinned Cabernet grapes harvested from 12-year-old vines. The barrel-aged white follows on from Changyu’s successful unoaked white Cabernet, which launched in 2017. Just 1,000 bottles were created from the 2017 vintage, but production was ramped up in 2018, when 18,000 bottles were made. The wine is aimed at independent specialists and the on-trade.

RRP: £35.
