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.

Tasting notes: Saturated red with violet shades. The scent is that of spices, red and black berries, blended with notes of vanilla and chocolate, combining juicy fruit and elegant French oak. The body is soft and harmonious and goes into a lasting and memorable aftertaste.
