ABOUT THE WINE
Telish winery was built in the late 1960's but was a state-owned monopoly until recently, when it was bought in 1999 by Jair Agopian. His main focus is on producing new and complex quality wines. Telish winery can be considered as a leader of the new image of Bulgarian wines. The wine is named after the ancient Roman fortress CASTRA RUBRA (Red Fort), whose ruins are located near the village Kolarovo. This wine became number one wine in Bulgaria in the competition DiVino. in 2013. Master Winemaker Michel Rolland is the exclusive consultant for this estate.

TASTING NOTES
Deep, vivid, purple colour with a ruby ring. Powerful, multi-layered nose with fine perfume aromas of field flowers, chocolate, sweet oriental spices, cedar, cherry liqueur, black currant and black cherry.

FOOD PAIRING
Ideal with roasted meat such as lamb shoulder or beef on BBQ. Delicious also with parmesan and honey.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Such a powerful wine deserves to be bought at least twice. First time to drink now, second time to age.
