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.

THE ORGANIC PRODUCTION IN KATARZYNA ESTATE
Katarzyna estate is certified in production of organic grapes and production of BIO wine. For the vinification of organic grapes of great importance is the lack of cross-contamination with the regular grapes. Before processing the grapes are tempered in a cooling chamber for about 20 h. The grapes are then sorted, destemmed, sorted again and crushed. The alcoholic fermetnation is made in fermentators made of inoks of 10 and 15 cubic м. The technological process includes: maceration of the grape must at 7-10 ̊С, for 10 days, fermentation at 27-28 ̊С for 7-9 days and again maceration with the solids for about 6 days at 26-28 ̊С. Malolactic fermentation for 30% of the batch takes place in French oak barrels of 225 liters and for the rest of the batch in stainless steel containers.

Tasting notes:
Intense red color with violet hues. Concentrated and harmonious aroma of mature red fruits, spices and fine shades of French oak. In taste the wine is characterized by volume, finesse, rounded tannins, succulence and exceptional palate. Wine with pronounced and memorable character.
