Damjanic Borgonja 2016, Croatia
Buyer's Favourites, June 2019. Once believed to be the same grape variety as Gamay, the Istrian Borgonja variety is actually the same as Blaufrankisch. It is a light-coloured, fruity style of red wine with hints of spice and meadow herbs. Juicy, easy-going and as loveable as a great Beaujolais, this is the perfect Summer red wine.
Pairs beautifully with: Cured hams, beetroot and goat's cheese, stuffed Portabello mushrooms, roast lamb or smoked salmon dishes.
Cheese pairing: Triple cream soft cheese like Brie.
