Edoardo Miroglio Mavrud 2018 75cl
Indigenous to Bulgaria, the grape Mavrud has been around since ancient times, with first recorded plantings noted in the 9th century. It's known for its good acidity and pronounced tannins and generous character, almost reminiscent of some Italian reds. GM and viticulturist Alberto de la Rosa is hugely passionate about Mavrud. Catmint, cured meats with a touch of tobacco leaf, blackberries and blackcurrants. Wood spice and a touch of smoke. Really interesting.
Wine lover Edoardo searched high and low to find the perfect spot to grow Pinot Noir in Bulgaria. The piece of land he chose is on the eastern side of the Thracian Valley, with the Saint Ilia hills shade the area from the freezing Baltic winds while a natural lake nearby regulates the temperature. But Miroglio is no fool, he has had extensive tests and research done just to confirm his theories. He purchased the land in 1998 and by 2004 they had produced their first vintage.
