WINES OF ILLYRIA BLATINA

$24.99

BOSNIA

A note from the winemaker: This wine is made of 100% Blatina, an indigenous grape of the Herzegovina region. It is comparable to a warm climate Pinot Noir, fuller body BlauFrankish or aged Barolo. Blatina is very hard to cultivate as it is the dioecious (die-EE-shus) plant – has pistillate flowers that require pollinators planted in the same field. Trnjak (TER-njak) variety is used to pollinate Blatina. Blatina is a dry red wine exhibiting a glowing ruby red color with garnet reflections. It opens gradually on the nose with soft aromas of black currant and elderberry and a hint of licorice. The palate reveals full, fresh notes of red and black currant, traces of dried figs, roasted almonds, ripe plums, and chocolate with an undertone of minerality and a savory dash of salt. Delicious freshness highlights the well-integrated acidity.
