Hails from: Thracian Valley, Bulgaria. Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mavrud

This comes from Terra Tangra, which is Bulgaria’s first and only organic vineyard and winery. A gold-medal winning red wine, it’s exceptionally good for its price. Aromas of fruit brandy, blackcurrant jam, cassis and vanilla tell you everything you need to know about this wine: it’s all velvety fruit. It doesn’t let you down on the palate where its tannins are smooth and silky with pronounced flavours of bramble jam and cream. Plenty of deep character and an oozing, moreish finish. Wonderful.
