WINE MAKING PROCESS:
The grapes are hand picked at full ripeness. Before fermentation the grapes are given 3 days cold soak on the skins at 10°C giving this wine its fruity and spicy properties. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks with recirculation, at maximum temperature of 28°C, for 20 days. 30% of the wine is placed in American oak barrels for 5 months before blended back with the rest of the wine.
Beautiful dark purple in color with blackberry and black currant aromas and notes of spice. A mixture of fruit and black pepper on the palate, soft and well balanced wine with a long fruity aftertaste. It is recommended to be served at the temperature of 18-20°C accompanied by spicy dishes, stakes, sausages, grills and seasoned cheese.
