Producer: Katarzyna
Region: Thracian Valley, Southern Bulgaria, Protected Geographical Indication. The grapes come from Katarzyna Estate’s own vineyards at the hilly border zone terrains between Bulgaria and Greece (the No Man’s Land) in the outskirts of the east slopes of Rhodope mountain with average altitude of 187-210 m. Only few miles away from the most famous Thracian Tomb Mezzek (4th century BC), Katarzyna Estate wines benefit from he unique micro climate, most diverse soils, exciting scenery and meticulous varietal selection, which together with the inspired and dedicated work of the winemakers give birth to White Soil varietals, the hallmark wines of the whole region.

Vinification: Before processing the grapes they are cooled in a freezing chamber for about 20 h at a temperature 10-12 ̊С. The grapes are then sorted, destemmed and crushed. For 80% of the batch the fermentation takes place in french oak barrels of 400l. For the other 20% the alcoholic fermentation is conducted in stainless steel tanks of 100 and 150 hL. The process includes maceration with the grape skins at 7-10 ̊С between 7 and 10 days, fermentation at 27-29 ̊С between 7 and 9 days and postfermentative maceration with the solids to 6 days at 26-28 ̊С. For the malo-lactic fermentation the wine is transfered in french oak barrels of 225l, then 100% of the blend ages in oak "barriques" for 18 months.

Tasting notes: Captive, intense, ruby color. Noble and rich nose, filled with aromas of ripe red fruits, smoke and excellently entangled french oak. The body is powerful, but elegant with soft tannins, voluminous middle and long and memorable finish.

Temperature of consumption: 18°-20°C
Aging potential in bottle, until: 2028.
