Muscat & Dimyat 2019, Korten Winery, Thracian Valley, Bulgaria
GRAPES: 50% Muscat Ottonel and 50% Dimyat
The wine is characterized by the exceptional presence of the Muscat variety in the body of the wine and the smooth taste, added by the elegant Dimyat. The Dimyat variety is an old Bulgarian grape variety and the major white wine variety in the Eastern Black Sea region of Bulgaria (near Varna, Pomorie, Preslav and Pliska). It is grown also in the area called Rodopska Yaka /the Rhodope Collar/ as well as in the regions of Haskovo, Ivaylovgrad and Chirpan.
The wines made from Dimyat are fresh with gentle fruit aroma of peach and white flowers, which is a prerequisite to blend it perfectly with other varieties, especially Muscat. This variety contributes to the specific character of this blend, giving it a more intense aroma with a floral character, rose and harmony in the taste.
