Winemaker's notes:
The grape is from vineyards with shapely slopes and light sandy soils. The scorching heat in August 2006 enhanced concentration of flavors. The grapes were hand-picked and carefully sorted at the beginning of October. The wine had aged in Bulgarien and French barrels for 9 months. Limited release, only 51 117 bottles. Suitable for ageing. Keep the bottle in horizontal position.
