jelicpino2015Deep burgundy red color. Nice smell of blackberries . Full body.In the mouth soft and silky, taste of blueberry and blackberry, almost sweet.  Excellent balance, 14.5 alc does not feel. Long smooth fruity finish. Definitely not yet at its peak (also its 2015), we will see how it will develop, it promises a lot.
This wine is not available every season, but when it appears its high quality is clearly noticeable. Miljan Jelic is one of those winemakers who has made his money in other fields of activity (Swarovski regional manager) and he makes wines for his relaxation or to entertain his friends. He also had the good fortune or good feeling when he was planting a vineyard in Pocerina (around Valjevo city) at place where the vineyard had never been for last 200 years. So he found pieces of land which the red varieties like as Pinot noir, Merlot and domestic Prokupac loves so much ! The result of all this is fantastic red wines,which occasionally (3-5 years) occurrences on the domestic wine scene, and stay long remembered by local wine lovers.

Well this move is full bodied Chines drama, strong and and overstated. This wine is also full bodied, but elegant and good balanced. But both are masterful work, which you rarely meet,not every year.
