The Syrah Variety has enjoyed a Steadily Increasing Audience
The KABILE line of wines offered by Villa Yambol just got a new addition, the 2016 Syrah red wine. KABILE Syrah has a dark ruby color with crimson overtones in depth. It smells of dark-red cherry, dark raisin has an elegant baric ripeness to it. Its taste is rich and fruity with a piquant finish and savory aftertaste. It has excellent potential to become a collectable wine.
Syrah is considered one of the most aristocratic wine varieties. And, as a true aristocrat, it is completely unpredictable. The sort produces exceptionally aromatic and multifaceted wine with smooth and soft texture. It is the immutable complement to any meal with meat. KABILE Syrah is the ideal match for gourmet poultry dishes with quail, duck, pheasant, or turkey, but also agrees with rabbit, pork, lamb, veal, cured meats and hard cheeses. It goes exceptionally well with traditional white brained cheeses from cow’s, sheep’s or goat’s milk. Wine connoisseurs recommend serving it at room temperature.
Market research suggests that the demand for this wine variety has been steadily increasing over the last three years. Bulgarians do not simply like Syrah, they want high-quality Syrah wines. Syrah is the fourth most recognized wine variety after Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Mavrud.
Villa Yambol launched its KABILE line in March 2017. Until now it included five types of wine: in the white wine category, Chardonnay and a coupage of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, and Rose from Syrah; in the red wine category the winery offered coupage of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as coupage from the varieties of Mavrud and Cabernet Sauvignon. KABILE Mavrud and Cabernet Sauvignon won the gold medal at the Vinalies Internationales international wine competition in Paris against stiff competition by wines in higher price categories. At the equivalent of the “World Championship of Wine” also known as the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, this coupage got another gold medal while the Rose from the same line grabbed silver. At this year’s Vinaria Competition the Gold Rhyton in the white wine category went to the winery’s 2016 Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The red wine coupages Mavrud and Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon also won gold medals.
The KABILE line was inspired by the legend of the ancient city of Kabile, a famed winemaking center of ancient Thrace. The city and its wine were protected of the ancient goddess Kybele and now her image is featured on the labels used for this line of wines.

We did everything we could to take advantage of the very best the region had to offer and infuse it in our wine giving it an unmistakable signature, so to speak” officials from Villa Yambol told us.
