Shaanxi "Xifeng wine", why do few locals drink it? The 5 small famous liquor instead

Shaanxi is not only the origin of the earth, it is also known as the ancient capital of the thirteen dynasties, but also a variety of food gathered in the city, like what mutton bun, cold skin meat bun, oil rip noodles, etc., are a bunch of foodies can not forget the heart!

Since ancient times, food has been paired with wine, and since there is so much food in Shaanxi, wine must not be missing either. The most well-known wine is "Xifeng Wine", one of the four famous wines.

Xifeng wine is produced in Liu Lin Town, Fengxiang County, Shaanxi Province. According to the relevant records, this wine was first started in the Yin Shang period, but really flourished in the Tang Dynasty, and was also classified as a precious product at that time.

The aroma of Xifeng Wine is unique among liquors in that it is "phoenix fragrance", which is clear but not light, strong but not overwhelming, with a sweet and mellow mouth, and a colorless liquor.

In the early years in Shaanxi, almost every family is equipped with a bottle or two of Xifeng wine, home work, guest hospitality are Xifeng wine, then the Xifeng wine category is relatively small, the most common and the most drinkable is now commonly known as "55 degrees green neck".

Young people nowadays may not have drunk this wine, but if you ask those who know about liquor, as well as the elders at home, they have definitely heard of the great name of Green Neck West Phoenix! Its status is equivalent to the status of bamboo leaf green and Fen wine in Shanxi.

It is reasonable to say that such a famous good wine, Shaanxi locals should be very fond of drinking, but the fact is not so!

If it was in the 1970s-90s, then Xifeng wine was definitely the dominant wine on Shaanxi people's tables, but now the situation may be a bit complicated!

The first is that now there are many categories of liquor, consumers have a lot more choice than before, and secondly, Xi Feng wine themselves do not compete, day by day, they want to seize the market, in addition to many products, advertising also played a lot, but the quality of the product has not been able to keep up, and then it is a large number of "label wine" launched.

And it is because of these poor quality labeled wines that the original image of Xi Feng wine has been corrupted at once! This is the main reason why few people in Shaanxi drink Xifeng wine now! So the question is, what wine do Shaanxi people like to drink now?

According to the response of many netizens, as well as talking to 50 Shaanxi wine lovers, we know that now Shaanxi people in addition to drinking some big name wines, but also prefer these 5 niche brands!

Xi'an Special

A classic strong spiced white wine from Xi'an Distillery, made from sorghum, barley, wheat and peas.

This wine was very famous in Xi'an in the early years, but it seems that not many people know about it now, especially young people. Xi'an Special belongs to the strong fragrance type big bend white wine, with a clear and bright liquor, aromatic and rich, sweet and clear, etc. If you like the high number, choose 60 degrees, the public taste to buy 50 degrees on the line.

Three Grain Liquid

Produced by Mianxian Sanliang Liquor Factory in Shaanxi Province, it is a strong fragrant white wine made from high-quality sorghum, glutinous rice and wheat. It used to be a little famous, but it was always lukewarm, and now not too many people know about it, but no one who has drunk this wine has a bad evaluation.

Some young people have never heard of this wine, the first time they see it, they often think it's some kind of cottage high imitation wine, but in fact they are real pure grain white wine!

Chenggu Special

A local best-selling liquor (personally, I think it's a bit like Sichuan-style strong spiced liquor), it is made from high-quality sorghum and wheat, fermented for a long time in an artificial cellar, and finally carefully blended and brewed.

This wine is clear and bright, sweet and clean in the mouth, with a hint of honey when tasted carefully! This wine is still a big seller in the region, but only locally.

Qinchuan Daqu

Produced at the Baoji Xiqin Distillery, it is worth noting that this wine is also a Fengxiang type liquor (it is also said to be a part-incense type, which I personally feel favors the Fengxiang type). It is brewed from sorghum, barley, wheat and peas, and is characterized by its colorless transparency, soft mouthfeel and long aftertaste. Although the quality is very good, but the fragrance type is special (and phoenix and strong), so the audience is not very wide, but in Shaanxi local or a lot of loyal consumers.

Zunrentai

A niche sauce wine from the provinces has also caught fire in recent times, although it is only a top seller in places like Weinan and Xianyang. However, people who have drunk this wine elsewhere have high praise.

Although the price is only 100, but the quality is straight to 300 grade products, this is not really blowing, just from its 10-year old base wine blending this point can know that this wine is not ordinary. Interested in trying it, I think it is a cost-effective affordable sauce wine.

Although Xifeng has been victimized by labeled wines, this does not mean that all Xifeng labels are inferior wines, like the Xifeng Chenzhu series (formerly labeled, now full-fledged) and the Huashanjian series are all excellent quality superior wines! And sales are above the full line of products!
