KOTTA 299 Gamza is made from another interesting typical Bulgarian grape variety. The Gamza grapes grow only in small micro areas in northern Bulgaria. The wine is full-bodied, spicy and powerful, yet elegant.
Suhindol Peak - the highest point of the Danube Plain, rises at 480 meters above sea level. This is a long ago extinct volcano, with a 8-9 meter wide crater. The volcanic ashes are rich in mineral content and have contributed to the formation of soils, excellent for vine-growing. Just below the peak, at the 299 meter mark, lie the vineyards wherefrom this unique wine has come to life.
Colour: Bright and vivid colour with a garnet-red rim;
Aroma: Multi-layered aromas of succulent black cherry, freshly made blackberry jam, roasted pumpkin, elderberries, cinnamon and vanilla;
Taste: Full-bodied, yet elegant flavour. Black cherry, blackberries and exotic spices, round tannins en exquisite oak impressions. Enjoyable aftertaste.
