VGNR Вионие 2021
Тероарни характеристики: Лозята са разположени в близост до град Каварна.
Винификация: Виното отлежава върху фините дрождени утайки в продължение на 5 месеца, като през първия месец се прави батонаж през няколко дни. Произведено е лимитирано количество от 800 бутилки.
Дегустационни бележки: Цветът е блед, сламено жълт с нежни зеленикави нюанси. Ароматът предлага приятни нотки на бели цветя, костилкови плодове като кайсия и нектарина, но и на добра узряла жълта ябълка. На небце виното е свежо, леко и ефирно, с едва доловима сладост и кадифена мекота във финала и дълъг послевкус с леко загатната минералност.
Съчетание с храна: Този нестандартен прочит на Вионие е идеален за разхлада в топъл летен ден. Ниското алкохолно съдържание и свежестта във вкуса предполагат удачното използване на виното самостоятелно, като аперитив. Подоходяща е и комбинацията с леки салати с млечен дресинг, както и такива, съдържащи морски деликатеси.

The Black Sea coast is an area where nearly 30% of Bulgarian vineyards are concentrated. The climate, with warm summers and mild winters, is suitable for growing white varieties. Autumn is warm and long, which favours the accumulation of enough sugars to produce fine white semi-dry wines. Over 50% of white grape varieties in Bulgaria are grown here, and the most common are Dimyat, Riesling, Uni Blanc, Muscat Ottonel, Traminer, even Sauvignon Blanc. The wines have a pleasant fruity aroma, rich taste and elegant freshness.

Viognier is a white grape variety used to produce rich wines with pronounced aromas of stone fruit, but can also be very herbal, with aromas of chamomile, lavender, thyme and even a hint of pine. At the end of the 1960s, the Viognier plantations numbered only 14 hectares - mainly located around Condrieu and Château-Grillet. The variety is difficult to grow, has a naturally low acidity. At the same time, it requires a lot of sunshine to ripen properly, but if there is too much heat, it accumulates sugars quickly and due to the high alcohol content, the final wine loses the apricot tones in its aromatic profile. Despite these difficulties in cultivation, after the late 70s of last century, various winemakers around the world began to experiment with it - mailny in Australia and the United States. Today, Viognier is enjoying a remarkable renaissance, with even increasing areas in France, and is also grown in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, the United States, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and even Japan. The variety performs quite well when fermented in oak barrels, in which case the herbal aromas are softened and shades of honey and vanilla are added to them. Interestingly, Vionnier is allowed and used in the Côte-Rôtie appellation for co-fermentation with Syrah. The allowed addition is up to 20% and actually it contributes significantly to improving the profile of the final wine.More wines of the same variety
