Unique grape variety with great potential
Mavrud is an old red grape variety cultivated in Bulgaria since ancient times. The birthplace of Mavrud is the area around today’s city of Plovdiv in the Western Thrace wine region, part of the Thacian Valley. The name Mavrud is derived from the Greek word “mavro”, which means black. This is probably because the skin of the Mavrud grape is bluish-black.
The wines made from Mavrud have a deep ruby colour, enough tannin and acids and a pleasant blackberry and prune aroma. Mavrud wines develop perfectly in contact with oak and acquire a powerful and complex aroma, supplemented by full-bodied, dense and harmonious taste.
Mavrud is probably the most highly valued local grape variety. Foreign wine experts point to Mavrud as the local grape variety that is most likely to become internationally recognized in the near future. Apart from single variety wines, Mavrud is often used in cuvees where it leaves its distinct blueprint and provides for an interesting blend of flavours.
