Колорито Сира 2018

In stock - delivery within 24 hours on working days for Sofia.
Art. # 1251
A rich wine with nice velvety tannin structure and dark red colour with violet nuances. The finish brings a slight smokey feeling and delicately opens the peppery herbal nuances typical for the Syrah. Red meats, game and barbecue are the best way to enjoy the wine, but also soft cheeses and grilled vegetables could be a very good choice for the vegetarians.
Alc. 15 %

AYA Estate Vineyards

AYA Estate Vineyards

AYA Estate Vineyards is a company, the successor of viticultural knowledge for several generations, with over 80 years of experience in artisanal wine production. These traditions determine the direction of the project - the revival of endemic Bulgarian varieties and focusing on the terroir expression of wine, thanks to working with nature, not against it. The main massifs are located in southwestern Bulgaria, in the village of Harsovo, Melnik region, but also have 10 hectares in northeastern Bulgaria, only 2 km from the Black Sea, near Cape Kaliakra, which determines the freshness of white wines produced by Seewines. , especially emblematic of which is Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyards in Harsovo, from which the Shiroka Melnishka vine grapes are extracted, are over 50 years old, and the new plantations with Sira, although still young, impress with their potential and the pronounced peppery characteristics of the variety. Seewines follows the principles of biodynamics, both in the vineyards and in the wine production itself, maintains the biodiversity in and around the vineyards and practices the most sparing and environmentally friendly viticulture.

Struma Valley

Struma Valley

The Struma Valley region covers the Southwestern part of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian part of Macedonia. The climate of the region is specific and is highly influenced by the warm currents from the Mediterranean Sea. The main grape varieties here are the local endemic Shiroka Melnishka vine, Melnik 55 (cross between Shiroka Melnishka vine and the French variety Valdigie), but also the international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and others. Due to the dryer climate and the higher temperatures, the wines develop warm southern tones in the aroma, with nuances of ripe fruit and a densely rich body. Of particular interest are the wines from Shiroka Melnik vine, partly due to the fact that the variety is difficult to grow because it ripens in late autumn. Today, the region is the most dynamically developing in Bulgaria, with many new, small, family owned wineries, increasingly focused on the quality and terroir expression of the wines they produce.

Syrah

Syrah

Syrah/Shiraz - Two names of one and the same grape variety - the winemakers from the Old world use Syrah and the ones from the New world - Shiraz. The grape is a deep red, even the pulp, therefore this variety is not suitable for blanc de noir wine style. Syrah wine has specific floral aromas in its youth and develops notes of herbs and spices such as white and black pepper as it ages. These varietal specifics come out better when blended with a small amount of Viognier - a method gaining popularity more and more around the world. Syrah produces wines capable of ageing and improving over decades, which enhances its plummy and almost oriental spicy flavours.
