Grenache Blanc


Traikovsky Grenache Blanc / Belan, a gentle, crystal clear, aromatic, well balanced, fresh and vivacious wine from the line of fresh and aromatic Traikovsky wines. Made of grapes from vineyards at 700m a.s.l., no irrigation, and a mixture of Continental, Mediterranean and Mountainous climate, with moderate summers and sufficient precipitation, and just the right amount of cool air to build higher level of acids and aromatic substances in the grapes, just like in other ideal dry wine regions, Traikovsky Grenache Blanc / Belan is fruity and light bodied, an ideal refreshment for all senses.
