3. Indulge in the newly released vintage Ao Yun 2017
For those indifferent to Halloween, we suggest a ‘wine down weekend’ with the newly released Ao Yun 2017. The latest vintage from Ao Yun—the brainchild of Estates & Wines, the wine division of Moet Hennessy—has been dubbed China’s Best Red, born within the foothills of the Himalayas at the heart of Yunnan. Despite it being a tough year with a dry, warm winter, followed by a cool spring and wet summer, the 2017 vintage turned out exceptional thanks to the winemaking adaptions by Maxence Dulou, Ao Yun Estate Director and Winemaker, and his team.
For the first time, the premium Chinese winemaker added a drop of Merlot into the mix, making it rounder and more concentrated, yet fresh and velvety on the palate. This also gives the vintage a deep hue that’s slightly darker than its predecessors. A product of rewriting new rules amidst nature’s challenges, the 2017 vintage truly highlights Dulou’s passion and proclivity for customising the winemaking process to complement any climate condition, while still refining a world-class taste.
4. Enter The Local Seram House at Sunway Putra Mall
When: From now until 31 October 2021
