Fanagoria Estate Winery has recently expanded its F-Style and Autochthon lines with rosé Pinot Noir and Saperavi. The wines are crafted for the connoisseurs of fresh gastronomic wines with rich flavour and taste.
F-Style Pinot Noir, rosé dry wine of protected geographic indication “Kuban. Taman Peninsula”
Vol.: 750 ml. Alc. 13.5% by vol.
The wine was crafted using the technology of short-term must cryomaceration, owing to which red grapes gave a pink wine.
Sensory characteristics. Colour – delicate pink. The flavour nicely opens up notes of wild berries and flowering white peony. Taste – fresh, with a prolonged raspberry finish.
“We wanted to broaden our assortment of rosé wines,” Roman Tcaciuc, Fanagoria’s Red Winemaker and the author of the wine, explains. “We did already work with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This time, we decided that it would be interesting to make a rosé wine from Pinot Noir.”
Autochthon Saperavi, rosé dry wine of protected geographic indication “Kuban. Taman Peninsula”
Vol.: 750 ml. Alc. 13% by vol.
In Saperavi grapes, the dying substances are located both in the skins and in the flesh – so to get a rosé wine from this variety, it is necessary to prevent any contact between the juice and the must. This is why the free-run juice was immediately separated from the must, whereupon the juice fermented without the skins, i.e. according to ‘white fermentation technique.’
Sensory characteristics. Colour – dark pink. The flavour nicely combines notes of cowberry, red cherry, and flowering ledum. The wine is soft on the palate, with a lengthy berrylike finish.
“It was very interesting for us to make a light rosé wine from such a mighty and rich red grape variety as Saperavi. And we got it – drinkable, berrylike, aromatic and fresh,” this is how Roman Tcaciuc described this wine. “We are pleased with what we got. Let’s see what the consumers say, how they will take pink Saperavi.”
We will be looking forward to your feedback about our new wines.
