“Beware of Blatina’s strength,” wine makers in Herzegovina will warn you. This female grape variety, which does not self-pollinate, mesmerizes with a soft and gentle beauty, enticing you to want more of the warm feeling it awakens. The cradle of the Blatina grape is in the Mostar wine region- it grows nowhere else in the world. Despite the efforts of wine makers to extend the range of these vineyards to other areas and ensure regular harvest by cross-pollinating Blatina with other varieties, it has proven to be difficult. When Blatina does produce fruit flavors and earthy notes: dried cherries, fresh picked blackberry, and even slight savory herb notes linger on the front of the palate. The earthy character of the wine also gives it depth, with secondary flavors found in many Southern Rhône wines. This wine will drink best young but will also stand up over 4-5 years. Pair Blatina with cheeses, spicy foods, smoked beef or any red meat. Pair Blatina with cheeses, spicy foods, smoked beef or any red meat. This blend is 85% Blatina, 5% Alicante Bouschet, and 10% Vranac 10%.
