Hi Riesling fans,
I wish everybody a happy and prosperous new year. I hope for all your dreams to come true and it will be a wonderful year!
And I do hope you did leave last year behind in fun.
This year I hope to taste more wonderful Rieslings, visit a lot of wineries, pass a lot of exams and of course write a lot of RIESsearchING posts.
So let’s try again: Bulgaria.
Last time I did not get enough information on Bulgaria to write a post.
I have done it better this time.
Riesling in Bulgaria!
There’s growing 1170ha of Riesling in Bulgaria.
Most are grown in the Black Sea region and the Rose Valley region here’s a continental climate.
Over Bulgaria you find different soil types:
Some alluvial soils, gray forest floor, maroon soils and some deep sand soils.
There are 3 other wine regions as well: Danubian Plains, Thracian Lowlands and Struma River Valley.
I believe it is quite difficult to stick a flavor palate on these Rieslings, because the huge diversity in soil types. Because Riesling does reflect the soil type it grows on very easily. Which makes it the most amazing grape variety for me.
I leave comment on Riesling tastes from Bulgaria when I actually have tasted some.
Something else to look forward to.
I know this is not much yet, but there will be an update when I know more!
See you guy’s the next RIESsearchING!
