Wine Albania - www.winealbania.com A small European country on the Adriatic Sea with Kosovo and Montenegro to the north and Greece to the south. It was under hard-line communist control for much of the 20th century but has been become a democratic country since 1992. Albania claims one of Europe's longest histories of viticulture. French historian Henri Enjalbert considers Albania, the Ionian islands of Greece, and southern Dalmatia in what is now Bosnia Hercegovina may well have been the last European refuge of the vine after the Ice Age. Certainly there are written accounts of viticulture in Illyria, as it was known in classical times, as early as the 8th century BC. Early Latin writers also cited Illyria as source of a high-yielding vine that was introduced to Italy. By the 17th century wine production diminished considerably under the influence of Islam. – Description from Wine Albania

  • Mulderbosch Sauvignon Blanc 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Mike Dobrovich's Sauvignon Blanc is an explosion of Springtime freshness: nettle, freshly squeezed juicy grass, jalapenos, gooseberry, green apples as well of exotic fruit like litchi and guava. Very complex, these aromas and flavors reveal themselves layer after layer.Different to all other Sauvignon Blancs of the New World...but fabulous !! Read More
