Abrau-Durso Blanc de Blancs Brut d’Or 2018Abrau-Durso Blanc de Blancs Brut is an award-winning Russian sparkling wine. Subtle gold colour with straw-yellow reflections. Fresh and intense bouquet of buttery pastry, brioche, white flowers and a hint of apples. Soft mouthfeel and creamy texture. Full-bodied palate of fresh green apple and lemon citrus fruit flavours with complex mineral notes. Closes in an afterglow of mineral notes. Excellent as an aperitif!
Millions of years ago, Abrau-Durso vineyards were the ocean floor. Today, sea minerals give power to the vines. Limestone dominates the soils, which makes it similar to some of the world’s best winemaking areas (such as Chablis). The proximity of the Black Sea and the green forests of the North Caucasus National Park create the perfect conditions for Abrau-Durso’s vineyards. Located amphitheatrically in between green hills, they get the most of the sun. The proximity of the sea is especially important at night when the vines need a chill for the grapes to ripen in the right way.
