Outstanding Mavrud again! We've been waiting for this wine for very long time. It is finally here!
Introducing new vintage Rumelia Mavrud Reserve 2016! The vintage was rated outstanding and while many of the wines are already sold out Rumelia chose to wait patiently before releasing it on the market. The aroma reveals a classified growth Chateau quality. Complex, balanced and subtle, yet bursting with black forest fruits and black cherry, smoke, fine leather, and seamlessly integrated oak. Intensity is medium plus which zooms in every detail of the aroma profile. On the pallet it is harmonious and ready to drink.
This style of Mavrud is modern and sophisticated. Great flavor concentration, loads of black and red fruit, maturation in oak, perfect acidity and prominent, but ripe tannin makes further aging possible. I would cellar it for for few more years and probably it will be best consumed till 2027. The new label line needs to be awarded as well having in mind the more traditional labels this winery has. The modern look and style of this 100% Mavrud makes it perfect gift from Bulgaria for all wine lovers around the globe. Only down side is the limited 2000 bottles edition from it. Apollowine has reserved 300 bottles, so act fast, buy now! 92/100p.
