Brkić Žilavka Ćitluk 2014

My first experience tasting a Bosnian wine, this golden-hued, lush, biodynamically farmed white from Brkić is crafted from the indigenous Žilavka grape. It’s highly aromatic, bursting with pungent notes of bruised pear, decomposing flowers, dried tarragon, iron, and Honey Nut Cheerios. Lees contact has endowed it with a lovely texture, as well as aging in neutral oak, lending further dimension to fleshiness, the core expresses pear as well, but also nuanced, ripe pineapple, banana chips and lithe, stony minerality. For this American palate, Žilavka is a unique experience. 12.5% ABV | Sample
