- Winemaker’s NoteThe wine has the dark red color with purple hues. It is filled with clear and seducing aromas of forest fruits with predominant hints of prunes and blackberries with a subtle hint of tobacco, coffee, cocoa and vanilla in the background. On the palate it is full-bodied and has a very fine tannin structure. The finish is pretty intense with a fruity character. This wine has a tremendous aging potential.Production process
Grapes hand picked and selected. With Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot cold maceration was applied for 5 days. After fermentation the wines are kept on their skins for three to four weeks. Prokupac has a short maceration period. Each variety is fermented separately and the malolactic fermentation is applied for each one. Wines are kept in the barrique barrels (French oak of 225 liters), for the period of two years, thereafter the wine was blended in large oak barrels for a period of another two years, after which the wine is bottled without filtration and then matured for at least one year before it is released on the market.
- Pairing with foodThe wine goes superbly with red meat, game meat, rich stews, lamb, rich cheeses and chocolate.
