• Merul Mavrud Reserve 2017


Merul Mavrud Reserve is a noble and rich wine from the well-known, native Bulgarian grape variety Mavrud. Wine is aged in small new and older barriques (225 litres) of French and American oak for 16 months. This with the intention to soften the temperament of the grape because that is Mavrud wine, strong, wild with character. Aging in bottle for a period of at least 6 months to qualify as "reserve" according to Bulgarian standards. All grapes for wines “Merul Reserve” are grown from their own vineyard in the village of Smilets, close to Pangyurischte in the Thracian valley.

Tasting notes:  Wine with dark ruby-red colour. Remarkable, multilevel aroma with nuances of sweet fruit like ripen cherry and plums, smoke, black pepper, dry spices and dark chocolate. Full body wine, good structure with a lot of velvety tannins and high acidity. Intensive and long-lasting remaining of dark fruit, spicy and toasty final.
We advise you to open the bottle at least one hour before enjoying it.

Food match: stews, red meats, grilled meats, lamb and game, grilled vegetables.
