One part of the vineyards of our Domaine Bela Voda is located at the foothills of Klepa Mountain, whose same-named peak is the neck of an extinct volcano. The volcanic soils encourage the development of desirable flavor and texture compounds in winegrapes, thus our wines. The grapes for this wine come from a single block of a larger vineyard that is bordered on the north by the river Babuna, which flows into our largest river Vardar, which outlines the eastern border of the vineyard.
Slowing down the ripening of grapes is also affected by the north-eastern orientation of the block, which together with the mountain cold breeze in the evening, provide a wider diurnal range, which helps retain acidity in grapes and provide a natural balance with sugar, and increase the intensity of aromas and flavors as well.
