Indulge the senses with elegant notes of pear, lilies, fennel bulb, and meyer lemon, infused with crisp acidity and typical hints of rose petals and lychee. This mimics the more mineral-driven and dryer styles of Northern Italy than the sweet and oily Alsatian versions. A staff favorite!
The Nikolaevo Vineyard is situated on rolling hills in the Nikolaevo village in the east Thracian Valley. At the foot of the old mountain at 300 meters altitude, the grapes benefit from the cool air flow and good temperature amplitude between day and night during the ripening season. The soil is mainly clay, mixed with some limestone.
The whole-bunch Gewurztraminer grapes were pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks and small 300L inox casks. The wine was kept on the lees for 3 months after malolactic fermentation.
