Villa Yustina Monogram Mavrud & Rubin 2015
Villa Yustina Monogram Mavrud & Rubin is an attractive blend of two indigenous Bulgarian varieties. Its intense ruby red colour paves the way for a complex nose of mature black fruit, chocolate and vanilla. The full-bodied palate is elegant with soft tannins.
60% Mavrud and 40% Rubin. Villa Yustina’s 42 hectare vineyards are located 4 km away from the winery, on a southern slope with an average altitude of 300 metres. The rows of vines have a northeastern exposure and grow in strongly calcareous soils.
Selection of the grapes in sorting tables, then separation from stems. Cold maceration at 7–9˚C for 5 days, alcoholic fermentation at 26-28˚C for 7-9 days in stainless steel fermenters with full control of the temperature. Matures for 18 months in 100% Bulgarian oak and 2 years in bottle.
