Overview Riesling is one of the grapes most sensitive to terroir (the combination of soil, weather, and general sense of place). So it’s always interesting to try a Riesling from a new area— especially when that area is as unusual as Bulgaria. And while this wine didn’t knock us out with exotic flavors and aromas, it did provide a surprisingly strong example of a good, enjoyable Riesling.

Nose It’s honeyed and floral, with citrus and even some peach—our blind tasters were impressed.

Mouth It’s fairly sweet but not overpoweringly so, with a long, floral finish.
