Blatina Premium Dry Red Wine 2018 Tasting Bottle 187ml (Wines of Illyria)
The wine in this small 187 ml tasting bottle is made of 100% Blatina, an indigenous grape of the Herzegovina region. It is similar to Malbec or full-bodied, warm climate Pinot Noir. 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.
A perfect wine with any meal or as a cocktail wine. VEGAN, ABV 13%.
