92/100 – Bob Campbell MW
“Rosé made from 100% syrah. An appealing floral aroma with a suggestion of berries and fresh herbs. The wine has an ethereal texture and gentle acidity, with a pleasantly drying finish. A charming rosé that’s nicely and expensively presented.” – Bob Campbell MW
“…I sipped the pale-pink liquid with ceremonial concentration as the unexpectedly warm sun dropped behind Bulgaria’s dramatic, jagged scenery, watching for the orange sparkle and silvery hue as suggested by the wine’s tasting notes. My satisfaction, however, came from its subtly tart and fruity-yet-smooth taste, attributable to the local Bulgarian grape variety, Mavrud, which I would later learn is harvested by hand, then crushed into “velvet fruity juice” prior to fermentation.” – Cynthia Rosenfeld, Financial Times, Feb 2014
Tasting Note: The Rosé has a pale salmon colour with shadings of a rose petal tone joined by glints of orange and an almost silvery hue on the edges. This wine is bright, luminous and limpid, dry and with attractively delicate floral nuances, mellow tropical fruits, resin and faint earth notes. Very elegant, medium body with excellent balance of freshness and longevity.
