The merlot for this wine comes from two vineyards in the village of Hersovo - 1.2 acres with an age of about 30 years and in the village of Kromidov - 48 acres with an age of 4 years. The Cabernet Franc vineyard is located in the land of the village of. Kromidovo and has an area of 11 acres. The average age of the vineyards is nearly 30 years. They are cultivated using biodynamic viticulture practices. The deeper root system of the old vines helps to supply them with minerals and trace elements. This has an impact on the structure of the resulting wine. The climate is warm, thanks to air currents coming from the Aegean Sea, but cooler currents descend from the surrounding mountains in the evening, contributing to the greater diurnal amplitudes. The soils are sandy with a high percentage of limestone.

The vineyards in Harsovo, from which the Shiroka Melnishka vine grapes are extracted, are over 50 years old, and the new plantations with Sira, although still young, impress with their potential and the pronounced peppery characteristics of the variety. Seewines follows the principles of biodynamics, both in the vineyards and in the wine production itself, maintains the biodiversity in and around the vineyards and practices the most sparing and environmentally friendly viticulture.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
