Jancis Robinson Review for 2018 Mavrud

Full bottle 1,340 g. Fashionable red wax seal and smart modern label. 40-year- old vineyards at 280 m near the village of Novi Izvor in the region of Asenovgrad, the birthplace of the Mavrud vine variety. The proximity of the vineyard to the north slopes of Rhodopi Mountain means the vines are well ventilated. Mainly Clone 1 (of two), which is late ripening, with bigger bunches, average and above average acidity, and grapes with thinner skin, apparently resulting in more elegant wines. Hand-harvested and sorted. Indigenous-yeast fermentation in small tanks with constant temperature control before ageing for 10 months in 40%
