We love introducing our guests to new grapes or winemaking regions and when we tasted this bottling from the Skegro Family Winery we knew we had to share it with y’all. They focus on the organic cultivation of indigenous grape varietals in addition to olives, figs, citrus, and pomegranates which helps to promote biodiversity on their farm. By caring for the land and taking a hands-off approach in the cellar the Skegro Family is able to produce beautiful wines with personality that are fully representative of the Herzegovinan terroir. This Žilavka is perfect to drink during any season. A lovely bouquet of dried white flowers, peach skin, and a hint of brioche introduce a lively, textured palate with flavors of apricot, nectarine, and a long, salty finish. If you are a fan of Spanish Albariño - give this a try!
