Description
Papaz, a limited edition red wine meticulously produced by Belba winery in Albania, symbolizes a harmonious marriage between the lesser-known Kabjuro grape and renowned Bordeaux varieties. It's not just a wine; it is an exceptional journey through flavour.

Taking its name from a small bubbling mud puddle near the vineyard, Papaz embraces its roots, encapsulating the essence of central Albania's distinctive taste and quality. The elegant aroma dances with violet, cinnamon, blackcurrant leaves, blackberry and the subtle embrace of toasted oak, inviting you into an olfactory symphony. When it touches the palate, it reveals a well-structured canvas adorned with ripe blackberry and plum flavors, intertwined with vibrant acidity and persistent youthful tannins.

Nestled in Golemas Kavaje, where the company's vineyard sits adjacent to the historic “Papaz” saltwater spring, this wine embodies a narrative rich in history, passed down from generation to generation.

Papaz Belba's excellence has been acclaimed in prestigious competitions such as the Balkans Wine Competition, where it is awarded with the 2022 Silver Medal award proudly showcasing Albania's hidden gems in winemaking. This wine embodies the dedication and mastery of the region's winemaking heritage, inviting enthusiasts to discover and indulge in the devotion and excellence woven into every sip.
