More about this product

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.

Rubin

Rubin

Rubin Bolgarskii, or simply Rubin, is a dark-skinned crossing of Nebbiolo and Syrah created in Pleven in 1944. Rubin is grown not only in Bulgaria but also in Moldova, Romania and Slovenia. The wines are of good-quality and high in content of anthocyanins, the compounds responsible for the deep colour of the wine. Rubin's peppery flavour can be attributed to the Syrah, as well as its pleasant crushed-violet aromatic profile, while the tannic structure comes from the Nebbiolo. Wines made from this variety are often aged in barrel where the vanilla and smoky flavours soften the tannins further.
