2019 Brkić "Greda" White
Bosnia & Herzegovina
85% Žilavka, 15% Bena Krkosija; biodynamically farmed on vineyards planted in Karst plateau soils rich in limestone, surrounded by hills and high mountains. Fermented in 3000L Bosnian neutral American oak barrels; 15-20% whole cluster with native yeast fermentation. Undergoes full malolactic fermentation, then aged for 2 years on the lees in oak barrels. Bottled unfiltered.
This wine comes from Greda vineyard, on the plateau of the hillside and showcases the potential of the Zilavka grape, with beauty and elegance that is reminiscent of white Burgundy. Full of complex aromatics of bruised apple, toast and earth with lush, rich fruit yet at under 12% alcohol, its still so lively and elegant with delicate flavors of yellow fruits, tangerine peel, and a touch of pepper.
