Chateau Burgozone

01 Jun 2020

One criticism that I often hear being levelled at wines from Eastern Europe is that the climate is too cool to consistently produce grapes with the quality required for wine production. Whilst this may be the case in certain areas, the 100 hectares of the Burgozone estate are located at the same latitude as Tuscany and enjoy a moderate continental climate blessed with hot days and cool nights, as well as benefitting from the qualities of being in such close proximity to the Danube River.

These warm days allow the grapes to develop high levels of sugar ripeness and the cool nights preserve bright, fresh, crisp aromas. This is especially significant in the cultivation of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Add to this the fact that this wine is aged Sur Lie (in contact with the yeast) and you get a balanced wine with a pleasing body that is not overpowering.
