Tcherga 04 dry red 2016 (Bulgaria): a historic wine producer who is learning fast

During the Roman rule, Bulgarian viticulture was booming until the Empire's collapse and sinking. This sector was not reborn until the First Bulgarian Empire (681 to 1018), even excessively. During the Byzantine Empire, viticulture is maintained and evolves commercially thanks to its strategic position between the West and the East. The Ottoman occupation of the Balkan peninsula (s. XIV and XV) meant, despite Islamic law, the production of small-scale wine.

A Cabernet - Merlot - Syrah of beautiful visual depth with a disc beginning to evolve. A medium intensity nose with great fruit prominence. There you can specify a juicy forest fruit (the plum easily) on a spicy background (black and sweet spices). Round mouth entry. Very fruity development, with a pleasant acidity. Silky and enveloping mouthfeel with a great balance. Half body structure. A warm (13% vol. alcool) and long finish thanks to its spicy echoes that combine with juicy berry fruit and an already melted tannin.

A red wine with IGT Thracian Valley label valued at $7 by Menada wineries, export taxes included. Its environmental richness explains why viticulture developed here so soon, only surpassed early by the Asia Minor lands, Nile Valley and the Caucasus. The Thrace Valley is home to Bulgarian native red varieties such as the Mavrud or the Rubin (hybrid between the Syrah and the Nebbiolo), however the French varieties are always a guarantee of quality, so try this reference to check it out!
