Crushed & Cured

Odessos, Claret, Vetrino Single Vineyard, Bulgaria, 2023


Rich in intense fruit aromas complemented by the typical green pyrazine character of the variety. Elegant, medium body with soft tannins and fresh acidity.

The grapes are picked by hand in small boxes and transported to a cold room. The chilled grapes are sorted by hand and crushed in small open top fermenters. The crushed grapes are cooled and cold-soaked for 3 days until the desired color is achieved, after which they are pressed. The must naturally increases its temperature and begins spontaneous alcoholic fermentation. The temperature is controlled in the range of 18-22°С. After 14 days the wine is transferred to small Bulgarian barrels for 3 months. Bulgarian barrels for malolactic fermentation and on the fine lees and 3 months in a stainless-steel.
