Review The Wine and Food Association (Amsterdam, Netherlands):

28e Proefschrift Wijnconcours, Amsterdam 2016
An intriguing wine made solely from the Mavrud variety. In order to concentrate the sugar and acidity, the grapes have been dried for 3 months on straw mats before fermentation. Once the grapes have shriveled, they have been pressed, followed by the fermentation. Vinica Mavrud ages for 15 months in new Bulgarian oak barriques.
The Mavrud grapes of Zagreus Winery are picked by hands and 100% BIO.
Colour: Very deep, almost opaque, purple colour;
Aroma: Intense, almost porty nose, mix of aromas of bright cherry, raisin plums and dark chocolate;
Taste: The palate is rich with lovely ripe fruit - dense plum, cherry, raisin, a touch of plain chocolate with some fruit sweetness. Soft but prominent tannins on the finish too. The relatively high acidity keeps the fruit and alcohol in balance and helps lead this wine to a lovely velvety finish. Careful matching recommended!
