Rubin is an authentic Bulgarian grape variety. It was created by crossing Syrah and Nebbiolo. The crossing took place in 1944, but it was not until 1961 before the new grape variety was recognized internationally. The Rubin grape is only grown in relatively small areas in the region of Struma River Valley, in the south-west of Bulgaria. This dry red quality wine from the typical Bulgarian grape Rubin expresses its own unique style. It is made from selected, well-ripened grapes, picked by hand and vinified using a technology specially developed for this variety. The wine was aged for 12 months in 225 L new French barriques.
In the glass, the wine has a beautiful, dark ruby red color, typical of the Rubin. Fresh and inviting aromas on the nose, including blackcurrants, dried figs, plums, raisins and overripe blackberries, complemented by elegant nuances of chocolate and spices. In the mouth the wine is full-bodied and has a good balance between the fruit and the acidity which ensures that the wine does not get bored. The Nobile Rubin by Logodaj has soft, round tannins with a long and fruity finish.
ABOUT LOGODAJ WINERY
Logodaj Winery is a well-known wine producer in Bulgaria, founded in 1994 by three friends in the Struma Valley, part of the Thracian lowlands, close to the Macedonian and Greek borders. The winery is located in one of the warmest and sunniest parts of Bulgaria, where winemaking has an ancient history. The craftsmanship of the winemakers has been recognized and admired here for years.
Today, Logodaj is a modern winery, supported by an ambitious team. In its pursuit of quality, Logodaj Winery has taken the advice of an experienced winemaker from a more established region. The winery is proud to work under the advice and supervision of world-renowned enologist Riccardo Cotarrela, strictly following his style and innovative technologies. Since 2011, Cotarrela and his team have been overseeing viticulture and winemaking on the estate.
The vineyards are located in a region full of history and wine traditions - in the middle of the Petrich-Sandanski Valley, between the emblematic town of Melnik and the recently discovered ancient city of Heraclea Sintica.
Near the vineyards you will find the medieval rock monastery “St. Panteleimon”, believed to be associated with the earliest period of the hermitage of St. Ivan Rilski. West of the vineyards, across the Struma River, is Kozhuh Hill - a remnant of an extinct volcano. Close to the vineyards is also the famous place Rupite, where the church “St. Petka” was built by the prophetess Vanga.
