I must confess. I’m having a love affair with Blue Danube Wine. I’m starting to believe they import wine specifically for my pleasure. This was indeed my first date with a wine from Bosnia Herzegovina. The 2014 Brkić Čitlučka Žilavka is a beautiful and unique white wine. The grape is Žilavka, simply pronounced (zhee-lav-ka). So much charm, so much heart, so much beauty, unique characteristics, and so many layers of flavors. A wine made with love and harmony. Organic farming, spontaneous fermentation, aged on its lees, and bottled unfiltered. Perfect. Maybe this should be the only way wines are made.
