Type: Dry red
Mukuzani has been produced since 1893, and has developed and improved throughout the decades, although one thing remains unchanged - power and harmony. We make our dry red wine with strong character from the hand sorted grapes grown in the beautiful vineyards stretched on humus carbonate skeletal soils at the height of 350-750 m.
We pick the selected grapes at 20-22% of sugariness and 6-8 titratable acidity. After removing the stem and de-pressing, fermentation proceeds at a 23-28°C in stainless steel reservoirs. We add the pure culture yeast. Following the 12-15day maceration, we move the wine into 300 l French oak barrels, for 9-12month ageing. The wine is further aged in stainless steel reservoirs. The subsequent ageing takes place in the bottles.

Aroma: Very distinct variety-specific aromas, bringing together black fruit and berries, vanilla and black pepper notes.
