The pleasant finish is enhanced with flavors of cherries, nuts, and chocolate. It is suitable to be served with red meat dishes, dried and spicy delicacies, game and cheese at temperature 17-18°C.

The Early Melnik Vine is a unique grapes variety cultivated only in the south-west part of Bulgaria. We took transformed and kept the unique, rich and different aromas and taste and combined them to reach the harmony of the French oak barrels and to produced a bottle of wine for connoisseurs. The grapes for that red dry wine were picked on 22 September from selected vineyards with controlled cultivating, ripeness and quality of the fruit and the wine was made using the special technology of our winemaker, keeping the potential and the specific characteristics of the grapes. The grapes are two times selected – on the vineyard and in the cellar using a double sorting table. The selection of the whole grapes clusters was done on the first table, then it was shelled by machine and the separation of the passed through the sheller damaged and unripe grapes was done on the second table. Maceration took place for 18 days and the wine fermented at temperature 28 – 30C. It aged for 8 months in French oak barrels and for 6 months in bottle before launching on the market.
