Notes & Pairings

Žilavka is a white grape variety native to the Mostar region of Herzegovina. This wine shows multi­layered flavors of peaches, kiwi and honey. The palate has a smooth texture balanced with great acidity and lots of fruit flavors. The finish is long and juicy. It will pair wonderfully well with Mediterranean meze. Try it with roasted Mediterranean vegetables or a spinach cheese pie.
