Domain Marash Lenea Red Blend 2018
Cabernet Sauvignon 45%, Cabernet Franc 40%, Merlot 15%.
An elegant, smooth and juicy blend created by the oenological team of Domaine Marasch, Lena Petrova and Evgeni Trenchev. The grapes are from 15-year-old vines in the Andonov Bozalak area, village of Nedyalsko, municipality of Straldzha - the soils are leached chernozem-resins and alluvial. The grape harvest took place in October, with an optimal balance of titratable acids, pH and sugars - in values determined over the years by the winery team. Cold maceration for 12 days and controlled fermentation were carried out. The wine was aged in 225 litres of barriques, a combination of different producers and partly in American oak.
