The comments are
2018 Zhang Yu Mosel Legend Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc: More like a rosé than a dry white. An enticing aroma of dried flowers, full-bodied with a peach and strawberry texture and a dry finish. A great match for seafood such as scallops or grilled salmon.
2017 Zhang Yu Mosel Legend Cabernet Sauvignon: clean, ripe black fruit fruit aromas, light spice notes, soft texture and ripe tannins in the aftertaste. Pairs well with beef or grilled mushrooms.
2016 Zhang Yu Mosel Family Cabernet Sauvignon: very smooth and elegant with aromas of cassis. Balanced structure and ripe tannins. After waking, enjoy with roast beef or lamb.
It is understood that the cumulative investment of Ningxia Zhang Yu Mosel XV Winery is over 1 billion yuan, developing a wine grape base of 78,200 mu, and the products are now exported to 44 countries, including sales organizations in Ireland such as Martin, Wineonline and Jus de Vine.
