Enriched sheaf theory has been introduced in

They consider a locally finitely presentable symmetrical monoidal closed category $\mathcal{V}$ and a small $\mathcal{V}$-enriched category $\mathcal{C}$. The category $[\mathcal{C}^\mathrm{op},\mathcal{V}]$ of $\mathcal{V}$-valued $\mathcal{V}$-enriched functors on the dual of $\mathcal{C}$ is considered as a category of enriched presheaves. Axioms for $\mathcal{V}$-enriched Grothendieck topologies are introduced in terms of $\mathcal{V}$-subfunctors of representable functors (one could say $\mathcal{V}$-sieves). The main result of the article is a bijection between reflective $\mathcal{V}$-enriched localizations of $[\mathcal{C}^\mathrm{op},\mathcal{V}]$ preserving finite limits and $\mathcal{V}$-enriched Grothendieck topologies on $\mathcal{C}$ and also a bijection with universal $\mathcal{V}$-closure operations.

This is a generalization of a Gabriel-Popescu theorem and of a characterization of Grothendieck topoi as left exact reflective localizations of presheaf categories.

Gabriel filters (Gabriel topologies) are the case of $\mathcal{V}$-enriched Grothendieck topologies when the enrichment is over the category of abelian groups.
