|Region||Alma Mons (Fruška Gora)|
|variety||55% Merlot; 37% Syrah; 8% Cabernet Sauvignon|
Typical for 19th century Bordeaux wines, blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (which is quite specific for Rhone Valley), proof once again it’s full exuberance. Intense aromas of ripe black and red fruits (from Merlot and Cabernet), are in perfect harmony with dark chocolate and lavender aromas (from Syrah). Aging in oak, not only gives one more aromatic layer to wine complexity but has a quite positive influence on its overall balance.
