Art. # 1875
A rich but elegant wine of pure Chardonnay aged for 6 months in Acacia barrels. It has a nice freshness, good volume and mouthful with a smooth buttery feeling. A perfect accompaniment for hard cheese plates, seafood and white meat dishes but it would also work well if consumed alone thanks to its complex bouquet of tastes and aromas.
Alc. 14%

Orbelia Winery

Orbelia Winery

Orbelia is a family winery founded by Kostadin Chorbadjiiski and his family in 2013. It is located at the foot of Mount Belasitsa, near the village of Kolarovo, 12 km. west of Petrich. Orbelia is the ancient Thracian name of the mountain range and means white, beautiful mountain. Orbelia has its own vineyards, which grow international varieties such as Cabernet Franc and Syrah, but special attention is paid to local ones - Melnik 55, Sandanski Muscat and others. Traditional methods of vinification are used and some of the wines are aged in French, Bulgarian and American oak barrels.

Struma Valley

Struma Valley

The Struma Valley region covers the Southwestern part of Bulgaria and the Bulgarian part of Macedonia. The climate of the region is specific and is highly influenced by the warm currents from the Mediterranean Sea. The main grape varieties here are the local endemic Shiroka Melnishka vine, Melnik 55 (cross between Shiroka Melnishka vine and the French variety Valdigie), but also the international varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and others. Due to the dryer climate and the higher temperatures, the wines develop warm southern tones in the aroma, with nuances of ripe fruit and a densely rich body. Of particular interest are the wines from Shiroka Melnik vine, partly due to the fact that the variety is difficult to grow because it ripens in late autumn. Today, the region is the most dynamically developing in Bulgaria, with many new, small, family owned wineries, increasingly focused on the quality and terroir expression of the wines they produce.

Chardonnay

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is the world's most famous white-wine grape and also one of the most widely planted. Of course, the most highly regarded expressions of the variety are those from Burgundy and California, but many high-quality examples are made in Italy, Australia, New Zealand and parts of South America. Describing the flavours of Chardonnay is not easy. This is not thanks to the complexity of the varietal itself but usually due its susceptibility to winemaking techniques - such as Malolactic fermentation which gives distinctive buttery aromas or Fermentation or maturation in oak barrels which contributes to the wine with smokey notes of vanilla, honey and even cinnamon, and not last the lees contact while in barrel imparts biscuity, doughy flavours. And all these incorporated with the varietal aromas of tropical (banana, pineapple and guava) to stone fruits (peach, nectarine and apricot), sometimes even citrus and apple notes. Climate plays a major role in dictating which fruit flavours a Chardonnay will have - warm regions (California, Australia ) make more tropical styles; temperate zones (southern Burgundy, New Zealand) - stone fruit notes, while the very coolest (Chablis, Champagne) lean towards green-apple aromas.
