• Zitara Chardonnay 2021 - Four Friends

Among the many blue grape varieties in the Thracian Valley region, there is a white variety that is also prominent in the region and at many wineries, including 'Four Friends'. Zitara Chardonnay is their single vineyard, organic grape, located in the village of Zmeyovo, just a little further than the winery itself. A classic white wine vinification process is applied, such as hand-picked grapes from selected plots, temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, and aging in oak barrels for 9 months with regular batonnage. The aim is for the wine to acquire a rich structure and texture in this way, enhancing flavor and better integration of oak barrel aging.

With great precision and expertise, winemaker Petar Iliev has crafted this wine. And you can taste it in the glass. An attractive and intense aroma dominated by ripe citrus, roasted nuts, and vanilla. The taste is rich with hints of stone fruit, a touch of butter, and notes of red oak, but very refined. Balanced, medium-bodied with a good structure and balance between oak barrel aging and fruitiness, the wine's intensity shines through.
