In December 2020, just before the Holidays, we launched our newest red wine from the series Augeo Family Estate – Augeo Family Estate Shiroka Melnishka Loza and Merlot 2019.
Augeo Family Estate Shiroka Melnishka Loza and Merlot 2019 includes 70% of the typical variety from Struma Valley and 30% Merlot. The wine has medium intensity color with attractive crimson notes. The aromas are the characteristic for Shiroka Melnishka Loza strawberries, white cherries and red fruit. The distinctive aromas for Merlot blueberry, blackberry and chocolate could be felt as well. The taste reconfirms the aromas with additional fruit notes that could be savored. The wine has a long finish and potential for aging. The series is limited to 2679 bottles.
The Shiroka Melnishka Loza grapes came from our own vineyards near Vranya village, planted in 1955. The grape variety Shiroka Melnishka Loza was named after the broad leaves of its vine and after the region where the grapes grows – Melnik. The grape variety is unique and cannot be found anywhere else around the world. Merlot is an international variety, originating from France. In our country it grows well in the Thracian valley in the regions with stony soil and long hours of sunshine. The wines have a protected geographical indication Thracial Valley.
