❤️ ZORAN’S FAVORITE ❤️

ONE BOTTLE PER CUSTOMER PLEASE

Super-rare unfiltered orange wine made from Grk, the obscure, almost endagered, and possibly our favorite white grape variety. Not only does it not have any vowels, but it also only has female flowers and needs to be planted next to Plavac Mali to reproduce. Like a great chaperone, Denis Bogoević takes the fruit of this romance, and does as little with it as possible. He lets it ferment with natural yeasts, macerate on the skins for a week, and doesn’t filter nor add any sulphites.

The result is a wine with soul. Honey, citrus, smoke, nuts, herbs … weighty and complex but still accessible and totally delicious. The only problem is that there’s only 1,000 bottles per year, and Denis prefers to drink it in his cellar with his friends rather than sell it. We don't have it often, but when we do, it's one bottle per customer please.

PAIRS WELL WITH
Try it with a Sri Lankan curry near Galle or contemplate it on its own, serve slightly chilled.
