Borovitza Gamza Black Pack Great Terroirs
Winery: Borovitza Variety: Gamza Vintage: 2018 Region: Danube Plain Description: A remarkably complex and a rich wine, demonstrating its unique potential. Unlike other pretentious wines whose only virtue is perhaps that the grapes have been harvested in boxes, this grape has such a strongly expressive character that there is no time to waste when harvesting and it is transported immediately in black bags. The black bag is a stressful part of grape harvesting but the unique qualities of this grape and the reputation of the producer mean that the grape does not even need inspecting. After fermentation, the wine stays in contact with the skins for another 15 days before being transferred for maturing in new barrels.
Chardonnay BELLOSLAVA Private Reserve Wild Fermented
Winery:Bratanov Sort: Chardonnay Vintage: 2019 Region: South Sakar Tasting notes: Shiny straw colour with light steel tones. Intense nose of vanilla, smoke, toast, floral and beeswax tones. Firm, full and flexible body with sweet citrus and apple in the aroma with a good length.
