Our Notes: The indigenous white Žilavka is ideally suited to the Mediterranean climate and limestone plateaus of Citluk where it has been grown for over a 1000 years. Utilizing organic and biodynamic principals and the lunar calendar, Josip Brkic satisfies his responsibilities to land and family and his desire to make wines of terroir. Made much like a red wine 50% of this 100% Estate Žilavka was fermented on the skins. Fermentation was by native yeast. The wine was aged in a large new oak tank on the lees for about 12 months. Often compared to white Burgundy Greda has both richness and density without high alcohol. Complex, and fruity the wine ends with a distinctive savory smoky finish. Its depth of flavor and low alcohol make it an easy foil to a wide range of flavors and cuisines especially those that include brown butter mushrooms or soy sauce.
