Sparkling wine made from hand-harvested grapes that have been processed gently and with limited access to air oxygen at all stages of production. Primary alcoholic fermentation of the base wines took place in stainless steel vessels at temperatures below 14 °C, after which the wines were left for a short time on clean yeast lees, which were stirred occasionally, enriching the fresh flavours of the wines with creamy fruit notes. Secondary fermentation took place directly in the bottles and the wine was left in the bottle on the yeast lees for 30 months.
Wandering wild geese in the dark night
There is no story associated with this motif, it is more about the atmosphere. The design and motif emphasise the uniqueness and elegance of the sparkling wine.
The mysterious, deep black background, the exclusively crafted seal of Chateau Rúbaň in an elegant shimmering bronze colour, the minimalist gold lettering and the dynamic group of wandering birds, illuminated from the side by the rising sun, create an impressive whole.
An important element of the design is the acknowledgement, even accentuation, of the texture of the cork stopper and its securing by the technically elegant attachment of the black agraffe. On top of the cork, the sparkling wine is sealed with the bronze-coloured seal of Chateau Rúbaň. This seal guarantees the exceptional quality of the drink.
The same motifs are also depicted on the decorative gift box, but here the logo and seal of Chateau Rúbaň dominate. Here, too, the mysterious colour of the dark night forms the basis of the background.
