Trnjak Premium Dry Red Wine 2016 750ml (Wines of Illyria)
Trnjak is an indigenous grape variety of Herzegovina wine region. Trnjak is best known for being Blatina’s pollinator, as both varieties bloom at the same time. Blatina is very difficult to cultivate as it has female only flower, blooms only for three days and requires a pollinator to be planted in the same field. The winery has planted a row of Blatina, a row of Trnjak, 2 rows of Blatina, a row of Trnjka and so on. The goal is that Blatina has Trnjak at least on one side. The nose has lots of herbal notes and an abundance of spices. The palate has cloves, vanilla and cinnamon, followed by ripe aromas of currant, raspberry, cherry and plum jam. Serve at 65-68F.
Pairing Food and Wine: spicy cheeses, grilled goods, baking, grilled lamb, spicy peppers, beef stew, steak.
Comparable with Aglianico and Zinfandel blend at first – vanilla , clove, baking spices, black currant. Cabernet Sauvignon lovers will like this. This is a VEGAN wine cleansed with clay.
