Stone Cuvee Zilavka Bena 2020

Zilavka (90%)/Bena (10%) Blend (Grapes native to Bosnia-Herzegovina). Beautiful straw color with some green highlights. Nose is full of aromatic white flowers and pineapple. Pallet notes green apple, apricot, tropical fruits, honey and roasted nuts. Minerals and herbs on the finish. Juicy acidity. Nicely balanced. Excellent! Thank You Ron B! — 2 months ago

Mostar Zilavka

2017 vintage. Surprisingly good and lacking any of the oxidation that sadly plagues whites from this part of the globe. Chamomile and orchard fruits on the nose, also on the palate. Perfectly ripe pear, yellow and green apples, white nectarine, lime flesh, a little mineral phenolic bitterness, dandelion and chamomile flower, nondescript light herbal note. — 3 years ago

Wow! A really really decent red blend. Velvety and smooth and at an amazing price point. Bosnia-Herzegovina has a bright future if this is an indicator of where it’s going. Highly recommend. — 5 years ago

Zilavka 2016

Like a more minerally vermentino. Not sweet but fruit present and balanced by food friendly acid. Smooth overall, no sharp edges but not flabby. — 2 years ago
