Grape Variety: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon & 40% Syrah
Region: Asoke Valley
GranMonte Estate Asoke Cabernet Syrah 2012
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Syrah. This wine was aged for fourteen months in new French and American oak barrels for robustness and balance. With a small percentage of Syrah in the blend to fill the middle palate, this is a full-bodied yet fruit-driven wine with well-balanced oak. This wine shows layers of plum, red currant, eucalyptus and spices. Complex and dry with exceptional marriage between the two grape varieties. The mouth feel is of cherries, tobacco and elegant tannins held together by an acidity that will help this wine age well.

The serene atmosphere and beautiful natural surroundings of Asoke Valley provide the perfect setting for the GranMonte Estate. The grandeur of Khao Yai mountain ranges has inspired the name "GranMonte", which translates to "big mountain”.
