Babaroga Sparkling

Sparkling Wine

The vines are grown with a minimal use of chemical protection and green harvesting is done in July, which limits the yield and, thus, leaves only the best grapes. The grapes are picked by hand and placed in shallow 9 kg grape crates in order to avoid premature grape berry burst and release of grape juice, then they are cooled and  crushed directly into the tank without the use of pumps. Fermentation takes place in new and old barriques made of Hungarian, French and American Oak. The same is true for malolactic fermentation. The wine is left on lees to age for a minimum of 10 months.  After aging in barriques, the wine si filtered and bottled for secondary fermentation. It is left to age for 5 years on the lees in the bottle before its release.
