Wine is bottled poetry
We follow the golden rule that winemaking starts at the vineyard – that’s why we grow quality grapes with excellent characteristics. We give the vines the time they require to build a carbohydrate reserve, we do green pruning and optimize the leaves canopy, so more sunlight to reach the fruit. Harvest is only done by hand, in small crates that take two minutes to be transported to the cellar. Then follows a secondary selection – picking only the best grapes. The standard vinification is done in stainless steel containers at controlled temperatures; whereas the secondary vinification is done in French oak barrels.
Melnik & Marselan Zornitza Family Estate 2018
An exceedingly interesting and impressive wine – medium body, very fresh and with a ripe-fruit flavour. Dry, perfect balance and dominance of the Broad Leaved Melnik Vine. An excellent choice for the summer season, as it can be served slightly chilled, wine in Pinot Noir style.
Cabernet Franc & Cabernet Sauvignon Zornitza Family Estate 2018
A classic coupage with great potential for development. Tight and complex wine with a palette of red and black fruit, spicy and sweet spices, wood and balancing freshness.
Syrah Fifty Fifty Zornitza Family Estate 2018
The flagship of Zornitza’s 2018 vintage continues in the same style as the pilot Syrah Fifty/Fifty 2016. This wine was made with the ripest grapes from the third and fourth Syrah harvests. It will tempt you with a deep purple colour and all aromas and tastes that come with a quality Syrah. A wine for competitions and special occasions.
Syrah Zornitza Family Estate 2018
The grapes in this delicate, light and elegant wine are from the first of a total of four harvests of Syrah in Zornitza Family Estate Relais & Châteaux. The wine is remarkable for its superbly clean, ripe-fruit flavour, with hints of sweet spices, bonbons, and an exceptionally soft, balanced finish.
Blauer Portugieser & Melnik Zornitza Family Estate 2018
Coupage in the Pinot Noir style, featuring the varieties Blauer Portugieser and the Broad Melnik Vine. Wine with low to medium density and marked fruity character.
Marselan Zornitza Family Estate 2018
A truly brave decision – 100% Marselan, which we can’t really say is typical for the Melnik region because it is normally associated with France. A formidable wine, high in acidity, tannins and alcohol, and with huge fruit reserves. You are sure to remember it, but should you forget all about it and come upon it in the cellar a few years later, the pleasure will be even greater.
