Pale straw in colour. The bouquet shows aromas of grapefruit, green apple and lime blossom with a slight hint of petrol. Flavours of lemon and white flowers are concentrated on the palate. The finish is vibrant and zesty on the finish.

Kanaan is located at the foot of the Helan Mountains in Ningxia, which is about 1,000 km west of Beijing. Kanaan means ‘the land of milk and honey’, signifying the hope for Ningxia to be one of China’s leading regions for the production of fine wine. The winery was established in 2011 by Fang Wang, daughter of Wang Feng Yu, a pioneer of viticulture in Ningxia. Fang is nicknamed ‘Crazy Fang’ for her boldness to start a winery with no prior experience and for embarking on the near impossible mission of growing Riesling in Ningxia. Kanaan has 16.8 hectares of vineyard, of which 1.3 hecatres are planted with Riesling. Due to the sandy soils, vines are planted on their own roots as there is no need for protection against phylloxera.  All vineyard work is done by hand. Winemaker Fang spent 12 years abroad, some of which were in Germany, where she acquired her love for Riesling.
