Rajnski Rizling 2006 by Podrum Radovanović, Šumadija, Serbia

Mr. Radovanović is one of Serbia’s best red wine producers. His Cabs are famous… and splendid in their character. But this post is about his Riesling.

Unlike in the Northern Europe, we have a magnificent weather now in Serbia. These days, the grass is cut in blooming parks of Belgrade. There is the smell of robinia, lilac, and mock-orange in the air. Colors are intense, kids run around happy, while bees keep busy. The spring showers make city smell of herbal infusion.

So, basically I’ve just described the wine 🙂 Radovanović Riesling smells of freshly cut grass, robinia honey, plus there is something spicy… white pepper? There are citrus fruits, but also herbal notes to be enjoyed, much like in Piedmont’s whites… Erbaluce? The wine is tingling on the tongue, acidic and spicy.

    • I know that the is some company from New Jersey which imports wine from several Balkan countries. I hope you’ll find Radovanović’s Cab or some other awesome example of Serbian viniculture 🙂 Cheers!
