Vranec Victory 2015 is a wine made from late harvested grapes from estate owned vineyards that perfectly highlights the uniqueness of the terroir of the Popova Kula micro-location.
This is a semi-sweet wine with natural residual sugar, coming from the grapes as a result of the late harvest, that is excellently integrated in the taste of the wine.
The color of this wine is incredibly deep and intense that in the best possible way reflects the very meaning of the name Vranec (Black Stallion).
The aroma is intense and fantastically complex with clear notes of cherry, blackberry, blueberry and aronia.
On the palate this is extraordinarily complex and rich wine with exceptionally full-body, where again, as you would expect from a premium wine, emerging are notes of cherry, blackberry, blueberry and aronia. The tannins are rich but incredibly soft, velvety and well integrated.
It has extraordinarily high wine acids that are powerful, not uncomfortably highlighted but at the contrary very well integrated and provide a very pleasant feeling of freshness.
The alcohol is high, but is also well fitted and does not separate as a side smell.
Unexpectedly for a wine with such a dominance and power, Vranec Victory is amazingly well balanced, fascinating elegant, harmonious and drinkable wine.
The aftertaste is remarkably long.
All in all, this is a fantastic wine, perfect expression of the possibilities of Vranec variety and one of the best ever produced in the 11 year history of Popova Kula.
Everyone in the Popova Kula team is very proud of having this Vranec and we are very happy to share it with the true wine lovers worldwide. Those who will consume it will remember and talk about it for a lifetime! Cheers!
