#WineWednesday Spotlight #103: Brkić Greda

Brkic Greda
Biodynamic Bosnian producer Josip Brkić

Today is a contribution by Bosnian wine educator and consultant Aleksandar Draganić over at Grape Nomad.

The Brkić Greda is one of these wines that Will Make You Fall in Love with Žilavka Immediately:

A deep golden yellow in the glass, reminiscent of that tree sap you liked to poke your fingers into when you were a kid. I love the authenticity this wine has year in year out – maturing in Bosnian oak, with fine lees aging to get its creamy texture and scrumptious notes of dried apricot, vanilla biscuits, ripe pear and quince. Infinite aftertaste, medium body and without a glamorous drinking window, but still something to taste if you want to remember this grape.

For Josip Brkić, who organically farms the white Žilavka and red Blatina in Čitluk in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina, the vineyard is a special place. It’s a place of dedication, a place that demands respect, attention, love, knowledge and passionate work. And his wines reflect his vision and dedication.
