A lovely Bulgarian rose made from Cabernet Sauvignon (64%) and Broad-Leaf Melnik Vine (36%) grapes. Aromas of strawberry and field berries. Mouth-watering acidity for roast chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely and has me hoping for spring! Blended from Cabernet Sauvignon (64%) and Broad-leaf Melnik Vine (36%). Pretty medium pink in the glass, aromas of ripe, creamy strawberry, lime and a hint of orange blossom. Light bodied with vibrant acidity, with a crisp finish. Enjoy with zesty summer salads or cold shrimp salads.
Up to 24 hours of skin contact, depends on the grape variety. Each variety is fermented separately and blended after fermentation. The wine has a beautiful pink color with pale magenta nuances.
Very ripe red fruit and light earthy notes in the nose aromas has a medium body with excellent harmony, fruity freshness in the finish!
