Mezes Feher – Medenac Beli 2017 – Orange Wine
Mezes Feher, on Serbian called Medenac Beli, comes from a vineyard in the vicinity of Sremski Karlovci. This variety is early-ripening (in August), but the harvest was done in October. 20% of grapes are affected by botrytis for extra layers and sweetness, which can be tasted in the wine. As if you were drinking dry szamorodni, which is a traditional tokaj wine, just without those specific sherry-like aromas. This wine has 14 days of maceration. The palate is dominated by flavours of linden tea, herbal trace, hay, dried fruit, walnut, bitter almond in the finish. Very complex and unconventional wine. Bottled unfiltered, contains no added sulphites.
