Stories like Bojan's are beginning to sound very familiar to us. A top banker from Belgrade decides to start making wine as a hobby, buying land where he would plant Pinot Grigio in 2010 (it is in the municipality of Sremski Karlovci, on the right bank of the Danube) and, inspired by some of the Slovenians winemakers with who he crossed his path at that time with (Radikon, Klinec...), he began to work naturally, orienting his production towards long macerations in skins. Today, some of its wines have become cult objects among Serbian sommeliers and oenophiles. His vineyards are on calcareous hills located between 150 and 200 meters above sea level. “Virgin” vineyards, isolated from all chemicals.

 

This cuvée comes from the first vineyard he planted, that of Pinot Grigio. It is a faithful reflection of his philosophy as in this warm vintage the Pinot Grigio was able to mature until its skins reached that pinkish tone so characteristic of the variety. The wine fermented on its skins for almost a week and then aged in contact with its lees in used large format barrels (300L and 500L) of both oak and acacia wood for two years. It is because of this pinkish pigmentation that, blindly, would lead you to think that it is a light red. 2017 was a vintage in which this variety did not ferment until the end, leaving about four grams of residual sugar in the wine (barely noticeable on the palate). Despite its 15.5% alcohol level, this wine is pure energy, feeling fresh thanks to those calcareous soils. A beast tamed by the passage of time, developing aromas of autumn leaves, dried apricots, black tea, rose petals, and white plums. Unique and very interesting to be tried!
