• Erelia 2017


Erelia” is premier class wine of Rumelia Wine cellar that combines the advantages of four varieties – Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Mavrud. Blend may differ from year to year in order to achieve the maximum of the grape varieties for better balance and complexity of the final wine. All these types of grapes come from own vineyards. They are vinified separately, each of them  approached individually. After fermentation for about 3 weeks, the wines are stored in French new barrels for 18 months.

The name ‘Erelia’ comes from the old name of the village of Smilets – Erelia, the territory where the vineyards are situated.
