2013 Maxxima Evmolpia/Cabernet Franc Borovitza, Danubian Plains, Bulgaria, Red, 75cl

Borovitza winery

Indigenous grape variety created in the seventies by crossing the indigenous Bulgarian Mavrud with Merlot. The resulting New grape variety exhibited fiery spiciness wrapped in juicy velvety fruit. In Borovitza the unique terroir adds minerality on the palate making it even more vibrant and zesty. Sour cherries are joined by juicy black plums on the palate while the maturation in used Bulgarian barrels adds a touch of cedar note to the spicy blend. Great with spicy Asian cuisine it also loves pizza,pasta and meat balls in tomatoe sauces.
