Vranec from the Republic of Macedonia. We live in amazing wine times–great varietals, amazing qualities and from lands like the Republic of Georgia. Vranec a DNA relationship to Primitivo, Zinfandel and Crljenak Kaštelanski–what we don’t know is what other grapes it may have descended from.
Scent of rose garden in mid-summer, warm suede by touch, and underbrush. Flavour characteristics of northerly fruits of Tayberry, blueberry, Marionberry; deep sense of earthiness, an essence from an amalgam of baking spices and hint of lavender.
