Home / Country / Bulgaria / Borovitza Gamza 2009 from Bulgaria – 90 points

 

Borovitza Gamza 2009 from Bulgaria – “Light ruby colour, with nose of blackberries and some cherry; berries and cherry on the palate, with hints of spice and mushroom; very earthy character, with subtle oakiness and fresh acidity.”

Borovitza winery is near Belogradchik in north-western Bulgaria, just to the east of the Serbian border and some fifty kilometres south of the Danube. According to the winery’s owner, Ognyan Tzetanov, “as an artisanal winery we are oriented mainly toward crafting limited volumes of wines with expressive character and carrying the specifics of the terroir and North-Western Bulgaria is a region that offers good opportunities for growing grapes and wines with distinctive characters.”

Score – 90/100 (non-blind)
