Our premium Velis Vineyards Reservas are wines with character and long-ageing potential, made from red Bulgarian grapes vinified in Germany.
These are rare wines produced in small quantities. The collection includes 100% Syrah, 100% Petit Verdot and Cuvée, which is a Bordeaux-style blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc). All Reservas age in French barriques for a minimum of 12 months and spend another two or three years in bottle before release. The wines have a drinking window of at least twenty years.


SYRAH

A jewel among the red wines.

Velis Vineyards - Syrah Reserva is powerful and very aromatic!

The Syrah of Velis Vineyards premium line is vinified varietal. The Syrah grape, originally from France, to be precise from the Rhône, brings develops a pleasant spiciness. The aromas are reminiscent of black cherries, cassis and pepper. During a long mashing time color, flavor and tannins are extracted from the skins of Syrah grapes. When pressing, we handle the grapes very carefully. Due to low pressure and the separation of the individual press fractions, we are able to determine very precisely how much tannins we want to have in the finished wine. The expansion of our Syrahs takes place for at least 12 months in French oak barrels. This ensures that the wine can continue to develop even more complexity. After maturing in oak barrels, bottling takes place. Another 12 months in the bottle before putting the wine on the market, guarantee round and well balanced wines, which still have the potential to ripen for a longer time.


PETIT VERDOT

A single varietal Petit Verdot - a true rarity!

Petit Verdot is a classic grape variety from Bordeaux, but it only matures there in the best years. Originally, we had planted the grape variety to complement and round off our Premium Cuvée. However, because of the optimal ripening of the berries due to the good climatic conditions in Bulgaria, it is possible for us to make some liters of the Petit Verdots pure. This is a true rarity. Due to the small berries of the Petit Verdots, the juice yield is low, but the aroma from the berry skins is all the more intense. Each year we vinify a few bottles, which are strictly limited. Like our other Reservas, the Petit Verdot is aged for 12 months in French barriques and then matures in bottle for another 12 months. The result: unique wines with spicy aromas!


Cuvée

Bordeaux grape varieties combined in an excellent blend!

The Syrah of Velis Vineyards premium line is vinified varietal. The Syrah grape, originally from France, to be precise from the Rhône, brings develops a pleasant spiciness. The aromas are reminiscent of black cherries, cassis and pepper. During a long mashing time color, flavor and tannins are extracted from the skins of Syrah grapes.
