The grapes for this wine are of the Plavac mali variety, which is the most famous autochthonous regional variety, together with a small content (up to 10%) of the Syrah variety. They are sourced from our own organic vineyards in the Komarna winegrowing area.
The vineyards are located on south-facing slopes with an incline of up to 30%, at an altitude between 50 and 250 metres. The earth is karst-like and consists of limestone with a small content of soil. The yield of wine per hectare is quite small and amounts to 18 to 27 hectolitres, which results in concentrated fruitiness and freshness.Irrigation is performed only in case of exceptional drought.
WINEMAKING AND AGEING:
Processing and vinification begin with the selection of grapes at our winery after they have been picked by hand. The owners perform this selection personally to make sure that only the best grapes are sent for further processing.The wine undergoes alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in a tank under controlled conditions. Rusula is created through brief contact between the skin and juice.
After stabilisation and filtering, the wine is filled into bottles in which it is aged for several months before it is released into the market.
This is a modern, lively and sophisticated style of rose that shows a vibrant salmon pink colour. Aromas combine refined and subtle notes of red fruits with freshly baked brioche displaying delicate yeasty complexity. On the palate it is dry, beautifully balanced with elegant creamy texture followed by a refreshing finish.
Perfect on its own and will combine well with salads, fish, seafood, and light pasta dishes.
