#winewednesdays -- Kriz Biodynamic Wines
As the roads got smaller and smaller, and the dry-stone terrace walls tighter and tighter (which our car, fortunately a rental, can testify to!) we knew we must be getting closer. There, in front of his 500-year old house, was Denis Bogoevic hanging out with his father Mile and a couple of friends, blasting the White Stripes on vinyl. Without missing a beat, he invited us in, sat us at the kitchen table, and poured us some of his biodynamic Plavac Mali. We were instantly hooked.
Denis describes his wine as “Peljesac in a bottle”, and we couldn’t agree more. The result is a big, beautiful, full-bodied red that is both rich yet approachable and smooth. The soil and vines are treated by hand, without the use of harmful chemicals. The approach to wine production is ecological, using only natural yeasts that are preserved in the soil and in the grapes themselves. All in all, the perfect introduction to Croatian wine, Peljesac and the plavac mali grape.
Happy Wine Wednesday!
