Brestovitsa Maximinus Thrax Mavrud
Made from a cult Indigenous grape variety planted since ancient times and yet only covering less than 1% of the vineyard area of Bulgaria. Mavrud's home is thought to be the northern skirts of the Rhodopi Mountain south west of Plovdiv where the main vineyard block of Brestovitsa winery is situated.
This example typifies its profile as a full bodied wine with tremendous longevity, boasting with red berries and raspberries flavours. One year in French oak barrels smooths out abundant tannins, that make this wine open up in complexity with age.
Open at least 30 mins before consumption and serve at about 16-18C. Ideal with red meat, game and strong matured cheeses
