“This wine is very good!” – such words usually make a great start of our conversations with friends around the table. It was a fresh spring evening, great for an aromatic wine, and we kept talking about wineries and Svishtov Winery in particlar.

LE VIN Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot

Le Vin is the first brand of Svishtov Winery (a.k.a. Vinprom Svishtov) consisting entirely of blends. The wines are made of hand-picked grapes from selected own vineyards of Svishtov Winery along the Danube valley. The grapes for this wine in particular come from the Sovata vineyards, one of the most favourite vineyards owned by the winery.

Tasting notes: The wine has deep ruby colour. Aromas of red berries, well-ripe blueberries and blackberries. The taste is elegant, with jam notes and maybe a little walnut. Nice and elegant final, medium-long body.

This wine has matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. There are two enologists in the Svishtov Winery – one of them is our friend Federico Ricci who is their consultant and personally recommended us to get to know Svishtov Winery. Their on site enologist in Tihomir Petrov. Together they make wonderful Italian-style wines and the influence of Tuscany, where Federico comes from, can be felt.

Pairing with food

According to the winery’s website, the wine would pair well with veal and duck meat. After our tasting, we absolutely support this. Moreover, any cheese or pasta with cheese would go well, too.

Value for money

We are impressed by the good value for money of Svishtov Winery wines. The price of LE VIN Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot is about 10 BGN which is a great price for such class of wine. Another great wine at this price by Svishtov Winery is Gorchivka Merlot.
