Manually harvested grapes, immediate pressing and clarifying of grape must. Fermentation of slightly unclear must with selected yeasts on the temperature between 14 °C and 16 °C. Wine passed into partial biological de-acidification. Two month-long wine ageing on lees and with stirring until the first settling of the wine into stainless-steel barrels.
Sparkling onion red color with a pink tinge. Varietal perceptions of Merlot with an emphasis on raspberries, strawberries, peaches and small red fruits. The aroma is persistent and shows its complexity over time.
Good with chicken, duck, salmon as well as with soft white cheeses.
