Aged for two years in large Slavonian casks, the Vitovska is a seamless and deeply stony wine. Its fruit character veers toward apricot and peach, yet in a subtle way-the limestone is doing the heavy lifting here, with the Vitovska serving as a mere vessel for the unfettered expression of rock. The wine finishes clean and long, with a sensation of almost mentholated coolness ringing on the palate long after swallowing. Whatever subtle tannins are present are melded beautifully with the palate-staining minerality, and the overall impression is one of freshness, complexity, and drive. A bold, uplifting, utterly delicious wine.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Vitovska is a sturdy and impactful white wine. Those natural wine techniques tend to flatten the varietal expressions, and sometimes it's even hard to tell the difference between mono-variety wines. However, this expression has dusty tannins and a really nice personality that I found to be exceedingly real and authentic. I'd serve it with a platter of pungent cheeses and some plump green olives. Drink Date: 2019-2026.
