Еленово Шардоне 2019
Шардоне с дъб? При това от България? Да, моля!
Точно така, Шардонето е най-благодатният бял сорт за отлежаване в дъб, който, ако е интегриран добре във виното, го разкрасява още повече.
Често сравняват контакта на виното с дъбовите бъчви с гримирането при дамите – когато е професионално направено, то само подчертава естествената красота.
Така е и в този случай – Шардонето на Едоардо Миролио от лозята му в с. Еленово (Нова Загора), е естествена красавица, отлично гримирана с висококачествен дъб.
"Отдавна не бях пила толкова хубаво българско Шардоне в този стил – елегантно и комплексно", споделя Юлия Костадинова (главен сомелиер на Seewines).

More about this wine
Edoardo Miroglio comes from a family with a tradition in the textile business and is a native of Piedmont. He owns a winery in Italy: Tenuta Carretta in Alba, which makes first-class Barbaresco DOC and Barolo DOC. Edoardo's idea is to combine the wine traditions of Piedmont and the Thracian lowlands, where they are no less ancient. Italian and Bulgarian specialists take care of over 220 hectares of vineyards and the production of wine from them, led by the famous oenologist Marco Monchiero. The winery is a unique building in the shape of a spiral, which descends three floors underground in the village of Elenovo (not far from Stara Zagora). The wide range of vineyards includes some of the most popular Bulgarian varieties - Mavrud and Rubin. Miroglio wines are very fine and characterful and are served in fine restaurants, including Michelin-starred restaurants.All wines of the same producer
In this region, which includes Southern Bulgaria, the climate is temperate continental protected from northern winds thanks to Stara Planina, with good rain distribution. It includes the central parts of the Thracian lowland and parts of Sakar. Most of the red grape varieties are concentrated in this area. Mavrud, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Muscat, Pamid and others are grown. The climatic conditions of the region favour the production of rich, dense, memorable red wines, especially from the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Mavrud. Good wines from the local variety Mavrud are especially valued for their aroma and taste of small red fruits, spices and herbs.More wines of this region
Chardonnay is the world's most famous white-wine grape and also one of the most widely planted. Of course, the most highly regarded expressions of the variety are those from Burgundy and California, but many high-quality examples are made in Italy, Australia, New Zealand and parts of South America. Describing the flavours of Chardonnay is not easy. This is not thanks to the complexity of the varietal itself but usually due its susceptibility to winemaking techniques - such as Malolactic fermentation which gives distinctive buttery aromas or Fermentation or maturation in oak barrels which contributes to the wine with smokey notes of vanilla, honey and even cinnamon, and not last the lees contact while in barrel imparts biscuity, doughy flavours. And all these incorporated with the varietal aromas of tropical (banana, pineapple and guava) to stone fruits (peach, nectarine and apricot), sometimes even citrus and apple notes. Climate plays a major role in dictating which fruit flavours a Chardonnay will have - warm regions (California, Australia ) make more tropical styles; temperate zones (southern Burgundy, New Zealand) - stone fruit notes, while the very coolest (Chablis, Champagne) lean towards green-apple aromas.More wines of the same variety
