Меди Вали Шардоне Incanto 2019
Гроздето е набрано на 12 септември и по традиция е селектирано прецизно на самото лозе. В избата, след повторна селекция и 14 часова студена мацерация с ципите отделеният от него сок е разлят в нови, специално изработени френски дъбови бъчви, в които ферментира при температура 16-20°С. Малолактичната ферментация след това и батонажът (ежедневно вдигане на фините утайки в бъчвите) са оформили хармонията на вкуса на виното. След осеммесечно отлежаване в бъчвите то е било извадено и бутилирано. Избегната е стресиращата за вината стабилизация на студ.

More about this wine
Medi Vali is a classic wine complex, built in 2007. It is located in the village of Smochevo, located at the foot of southwestern Rila, at 630 m above sea level, in the northernmost part of the valley of the river Struma, on the picturesque road to the Rila Monastery. It consists of a modern wine cellar and 370 decares of vineyards, planted with Chardonnay, Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc, two branches of Merlot and two branches of Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2010 in Medi Valley the realization of the new concept of the winery began, the aim of which is to turn it into the pearl of the Bulgarian southwest. The creation of interesting, rich, specific terroir wines with their own style and unique character begins, made from specially selected for each variety and type of wine from grapes in optimal maturity.All wines of the same producer
The Struma Valley region covers the Southwestern part of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian part of Macedonia. The climate of the region is specific and is highly influenced by the warm currents from the Mediterranean Sea. The main grape varieties here are the local endemic Shiroka Melnishka vine, Melnik 55 (cross between Shiroka Melnishka vine and the French variety Valdigie), but also the international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and others. Due to the dryer climate and the higher temperatures, the wines develop warm southern tones in the aroma, with nuances of ripe fruit and a densely rich body. Of particular interest are the wines from Shiroka Melnik vine, partly due to the fact that the variety is difficult to grow because it ripens in late autumn. Today, the region is the most dynamically developing in Bulgaria, with many new, small, family owned wineries, increasingly focused on the quality and terroir expression of the wines they produce.More wines of this region
Chardonnay is the world's most famous white-wine grape and also one of the most widely planted. Of course, the most highly regarded expressions of the variety are those from Burgundy and California, but many high-quality examples are made in Italy, Australia, New Zealand and parts of South America. Describing the flavours of Chardonnay is not easy. This is not thanks to the complexity of the varietal itself but usually due its susceptibility to winemaking techniques - such as Malolactic fermentation which gives distinctive buttery aromas or Fermentation or maturation in oak barrels which contributes to the wine with smokey notes of vanilla, honey and even cinnamon, and not last the lees contact while in barrel imparts biscuity, doughy flavours. And all these incorporated with the varietal aromas of tropical (banana, pineapple and guava) to stone fruits (peach, nectarine and apricot), sometimes even citrus and apple notes. Climate plays a major role in dictating which fruit flavours a Chardonnay will have - warm regions (California, Australia ) make more tropical styles; temperate zones (southern Burgundy, New Zealand) - stone fruit notes, while the very coolest (Chablis, Champagne) lean towards green-apple aromas.More wines of the same variety
