Ivan Kosovec is bringing careful organic farming and no-BS winemaking to Moslavina, Croatia, one of the country's smallest regions. He purchased four hectares of untouched land 50km from Zagreb and cleared it for vineyards that he planted in 2005, working organically from the start. He has made a name for himself in natural wine circles because of his work reviving a very rare local white grape called Škrlet.

However, he also works with the more commonly planted Austrian varieties like Frankovka (aka Blaufränkisch) or Zweigelt, as is the case here. This is such a great expression of Zweigelt, capturing the darker qualities of the grape with red plum and fresh fig notes. Yet where many versions of this grape get overly extracted and are fatiguing, Ivan's version has a remarkable harmony of elements: plump fruit, rustic levity, tannic clarity, and tangy edge. Very crowd-friendly and perfect for sausage, hearty stews, or a roasted Zagorje turkey, a special breed that is found only in central Croatia. Jonathan Kemp
