Winery Notes:
Sparkling purple color with raspberry, strawberry and wild berry jam characters and a light touch of mint and green pepper. A medium-to-full bodied wine with balanced acidity and a pleasant finish.

The Harvest:
The grapevine's development was characterized by a cold, snowy winter that began earlier than normal. Balanced temperatures in the spring (March-May) produced optimal conditions for a unified, high-quality bud-burst and ripening. At the outset of the summer, the region was hit with several severe heat waves that lasted through mid-August. The harvest season was delayed by two weeks compared to previous years. The late ripening was characteristic for all vineyards and varieties. Toward the completion of the harvest, the gap was shortened, and the season ended like previous years and was shorter than usual.
