In The Glass: Antunović Postup 2010

This bottle was picked up while in Zagreb at the Wine Weekend. While Antunović wasn’t present (this bottle is from the almighty & glorious, Vrutak), it’s always interesting to taste a Postup wine as they vary a good deal in character and there weren’t a tremendous amount of them at the wine fair.

What Mato Antunović is making down in the village of Oskorušno is the type of Postup that is more food friendly. With a strong brace of acidity, it really wants to be paired with a dish. It does open up a decent amount with time, but it’s more generally reserved and lighter than other Postups I’ve had.

Still, a good deep wine made from the Plavac Mali grape that, these days in Croatia is a decent price for the region.
