crveni vitez 2017

Color dark ruby red. Smell mild sour cherries. MediumĀ  body.. In the mouth black currant and cherry, a nice balance of alcohol and acidity, Noticeable tannin. Interesting, no earthy flavor characteristic for Prokupac. Short finish full of red berries with some mineral in the background and noticeable fruity acidity, butĀ  very tasty.

Vintage 2014.Although this year was very bad for winemakers, it did not affect in this Prokupac, probably because the vineyards are more than 100 years old. We remember it as a rounded wine, with an earthy aroma, perfectly balanced. Almost the entire quantity was exported abroad, to France.

Vintage 2015. this year has brought very strong wine, as winemakers say “wine with his own mind”. It was very popular here, as a good pair with homemade spicy food Also a new label came, (as in the picture).
Vintage 2016. Soft wine, pure sour cherries in the mouth,very drinkable . And without the influence of the oak.

Vintage 2017.Deep dark red color, almost black, with burgundy color glow on the edge of the glass. Strong smell of cherries and black berries. Full In the mouth , cherries, black currants and discreet oak in the background. Very good balanced, mild tannins.Very nicely paired with oak. Long fruit finish.Gold medal for quality at the international fair in Timisoara.
What else ? Mali podrum Gajic is a family winery from the central Serbia.Zupa, Aleksabrovac.Three generations participate in wine production, and they also have excellent fruit brandies.
