The grapes for this wine come from the famous international grape varietyTribidrag, and are grown in our own organic vineyard Komarna. The vineyard bears the internal mark A5 and is situated at 100 m above sea level, on the southern slopes with an incline of up to 30%. The vineyard consists of 64 rows, with a planting distance of 1.8 m between the rows and spacing between the vines of 0.8 m. The vines were planted using the cultivation method called bilateral cordon. The total number of the grape vines in this vineyard is 13 340.
The karst-like ground consists of limestone with a small content of soil. The yield of wine per hectare is quite small and amounts to 18 to 28 hl/ha, which results in concentrated fruit quality and freshness.
WINEMAKING AND AGEING:
Processing and vinification begin with the selection of grapes at our winery
after they have been picked by hand. The owners select the grapes personally to
make sure that only the best grapes are sent for further processing. The wine
undergoes alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in a tank under controlled
conditions. After this, it is aged under professional supervision in old barrique
barrels made from French and American oak for 12 months. After filling, it is
aged for at least 6 months before it is released into the market.
This wine originates from a vineyard that descends almost all the way to the sea. Aromas include attractive notes of blackberries, cherries, plums and sweet spices. This vintage of Tribidrag 2018 gives a robust and powerful wine, albeit well balanced and harmonious, capable of combining its vigour and strength with elegance.
WINE AND FOOD PAIRING:
St. Michael Syrah is a full-bodied wine with a sophisticated structure and
balanced freshness, and it can be paired with most beef and lamb dishes,
delicious pasta dishes and hard cheeses. Due to its elegant nose of preserved
dark cherries, blueberries, dark chocolate, tar and dried Mediterranean herbs, it
can also be enjoyed on its own, served at 18°C.
