Abrau-Durso Vedernikov Tsimlyansky Cherni Red 2017Abrau-Durso Vedernikov Tsimlyansky Cherni Red has a deep ruby colour and purple highlights. The intense and complex nose opens with nuances of blackcurrants, cherries, prunes, tobacco, smoked game and pepper spice. Magnificent oily texture and mouthfeel. The dry and full-bodied palate has round tannins balancing with a moderately fresh acidity. Intense and bright flavours of cherries and prunes with layers of chocolate, smoked meats, black pepper and a tobacco bitterness. Closes in a long cherry jam finish.
Nearly three-quarters of the vines here need to be buried in the winter, which gets down to -25 or -28°C. If vines have to suffer to produce good wine, then these vines should be producing good wine indeed! Summer is also warm here, getting up to 38°C or 40°C, so vines need to be hardy at both ends of the temperature spectrum.
The autochtonous varieties are something the company is especially proud of: Tsymlianskiy Cherny, Sibirkoviy and the most famous one, Krasnostop Zolotovskiy.
The wine ages in oak barrels.
