A conspicuous blend of all that was swept from the floor to include the indigenous Melnik 55 from the great 2015 vintage. No doubt minimal handling in the winery has preserved this wine and prepared it for a long age in bottle. Delicate, with wild strawberries and red berries mixed with limes on nose and palate. It went great with greasy Boreray mutton broth, while standing up to all fat and generous spices added. Ideal with salads, chicken and fish too.
