100% Misket – an indigenous Bulgarian white grape variety, the clone for AXL being Karlovo or Rose Valley Misket, which is only grown in the little region of Rose Valley in Central Bulgaria. The wine is made by Madlena Kuzmanova and the winery’s team, sourcing the grapes from a single vineyard, where specific pruning, canopy management and green harvesting are applied to ensure the highest possible quality of fruit.
Probably the best white produced from Tamianka in Bulgaria – a local selection of Muscat grown for centuries in Bulgaria and some other Balkan countries. The South Sakar region is one of the sunniest parts of Bulgaria and really suits this variety. All grapes are hand-picked from the Bratanov family’s Shishmanovo single vineyard and vinified by their oenologist Maria Stoeva using the winery’s signature wild fermentation.
Produced from 100% Gamza, a local variety at home in North West Bulgaria. It was handpicked in late September from 50 year old vineyards on sandy clay soils and made by the winemaker and owner Adriana Srebrinova with minimal intervention winemaking, no filtration and with no added sulphites.
To finish – this lovely red from Struma Valley, the far South West of Bulgaria, made from Melnik 55 (a.k.a. Early Melnik Vine) - the signature red local Bulgarian grape variety of the region, by the winemaker Desislava Hitova. All the grapes come from Orbelia’s own vineyards – 15 year old vines near the village of Levunovo. Silver Medal winner at Decanter World Wine Awards 2020.
