Crushed & Cured

Bratanov Family Winery, Symbiose, South Sakar Mountain, Bulgaria, 2022



Light golden yellow with green hues, rich and intense with notes of citrus and flowers. Medium bodied, fresh and zesty with notes of lime, white peach and acacia and a lovely mineral finish.

All grapes are hand-picked on the same day in crates in the morning cool temperature with consideration to the phenolic ripeness, brix, acidity and pH, manually selected and carefully sorted before crushing. All the grape varieties are vinified together (the method of sepage) with gentle pressing (only first fractions are used), low temperature controlled wild spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts in stainless steel tank. Very gentle clarification and delicate filtration before bottling.
