Rose Pamplemous Bratanov 2022
From French "Pamplemousse" (Pamplemousse) - grapefruit. The name was born from the predominant aroma and taste of ripe red grapefruit, which is mainly imparted by Cabernet.
For the first harvest, Winery Bratanov works with international red varieties from its new vineyards in the Datarla area of the village of Shishmanovo, South Sakar. The vineyard was established in 2016, and here the soils are more clayey compared to those of the old vineyards in the Armutluka area. The wine is a sepage (varietals fermented together) of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, specially selected early for rosé on August 29. Fermentation took place with "wild" yeast (the natural microflora from the vineyard).
The wine is not stabilized in the cold - the appearance of a harmless crystalline precipitate is possible.
Produced in a limited quantity of 2,230 but.

More about this product
The Bratanov family cellar is located near the village of Shishmanovo, South Sakar. In the period 2006-2008, they planted 24 hectares of their own vineyards with the classic varieties Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, as well as with the local Rubin and Tamianka, in order to restore the hereditary viticulture tradition after a 50-year break. The terrain is located on sunny hills, and the nearby river Maritsa and the winds penetrating along it from the Aegean Sea form an almost Mediterranean climate. The winery has an experimental spirit, uses different methods of winemaking and is not afraid to use spontaneous, "wild" fermentation. Since 2015, the chief oenologist in the winery is a young oenologist Maria Stoeva, who graduated in Dijon, France, who together with the owners focuses on wines that best reflect the characteristics of the terroir and have a strong personality.All wines of the same producer
In this region, which includes Southern Bulgaria, the climate is temperate continental protected from northern winds thanks to Stara Planina, with good rain distribution. It includes the central parts of the Thracian lowland and parts of Sakar. Most of the red grape varieties are concentrated in this area. Mavrud, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Muscat, Pamid and others are grown. The climatic conditions of the region favour the production of rich, dense, memorable red wines, especially from the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Mavrud. Good wines from the local variety Mavrud are especially valued for their aroma and taste of small red fruits, spices and herbs.More wines of this region
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.More wines of the same variety
