Prokupac is one of the oldest indigenous grape varieties in Serbia.
The wines produced from Prokupac grapes have light to medium body, a good consistency and they are ruby red in colour. All of this gives us food-friendly red wines with a high amount of drinkability.
The acidity is moderate while the tannins are distinctively medium to high. The wine aromas are fruity and spicy with black cherries being the most prominent, with blackberries, plums, prunes, black pepper, raspberries, cinnamon and cloves. The wine bouquet yields tobacco leaves, mushrooms and earthiness.
On Sunday 14th at Alex + Pinard there is limited availability, so reserve your spot at:
