Georgiev Milkov Mavrud Novi Izvor 2021 Thracian Valley
A revelation from this micro-winery created by friends Petra and Radostin, who both have plenty of experience making wine outside of their native Bulgaria. They wanted to celebrate the local Mavrud and Rubin, seeking out the best and oldest parcels of vines they could find. They eschew heavy-handed, over-oaked styles, and the Mavrud expresses a gentle, well-balanced and less extracted style. The result is a layered and refined wine with all the spice expected from this local grape variety.
