An exceptional and harmonious blend between the “wildling” Broad-leaved Melnik vine and the “noble” Pinot Noir. With this wine, we aim to show the harmony between the indigenous grape and the international one – Melnik and Pinot noir have similar elegant nature and produce a perfectly balanced wine.
