Notes from August Imports:
"With a highly successful agricultural business under his belt, Minco Jordanov spares no expense when it comes to his real passion - the wines of Jordanov and Macedon. Determined to put his nation of North Macedonia on the map, he is committed to making deeply intelligent, understated (and underpriced) wines for as long as it takes.
Over the years, Zilavka (pron. "jhee-lahv-kah") from Herzegovina has trekked it's way over the mountains of Kosovo and Montenegro to land in the hot, fertile plains of North Macedonia. This intriguing grape variety is high in natural acidity but ripens quickly, so it takes a steady hand and a watchful eye to mine it for all its potential. Here, Jordanov hits on all cylinders: warm citrus, minerality, and Mediterranean blossoms combine with a rich and balanced mouthfeel... at a price that makes the exploration fun and easy!"
