Quercus (Cattunar Winery)

After pressing white grapes and separating the unfermented must, the sweet pomace is transferred to closed containers called "vrionik." A month after the start of fermentation, the pomace is extracted from the container and put into a still for distillation. During the distillation process, the first part of the distillate (the head) and the last part (the tails or "flema"), which contains less than 30% alcohol, are separated. The middle part of the distillate is used for consumption and stored in stainless steel barrels. Before bottling, the brandy is filtered. The brandy must age for at least 8 years in oak barrels (such as acacia, cherry, or oak) before consumption.
