Winemaker's notes:
Orbelus Prima is a regional wine which combines the powerful aroma of the unique Bulgarian grape variety Early Melnik with the distinctive rich taste of Cabernet Sauvignon. The Melnik grape is rare and grows only in this part of the world. It has been brought to this region from the Middle East by the soldiers of Alexander the Great 23 centuries ago and remains till this day one of the most exquisite grape varieties. The blend harmony is completed with Syrah and a touch of Petit Verdot. Aged for 8 months in French oak barrels.

Non filtered.

Limited quatity of 2698 bottles.

Produced and bottled from Damianitsa Ltd. from order and from private vineyards of BioAgroFoods 2000 Ltd.
