Ćilibar (pronounced chilly-bar) is a dry organic white wine from Panonia grapes. It is a cross of Riesling on one side and Bianca on the other. It is grown without any spraying in most years.
Aromas of quince, wild pear and hazelnuts dominate in the beginning, while after some exposure to the air and after warming up a bit in a glass candied orange and lemon peel as well as some smokiness come to light. Medium body, medium long finish.
Ćilibar should be served not too cold. Keep it in the fridge and then let it warm to about 9ᴼC in the glass. Aeration will help it develop its full aromas.
It goes well with richer food, oily fish, fowl in white sauce, pasta carbonara, roast pork. Excellent with Asian dishes, especially spicy ones. Serve with very sweet, white deserts (such as baklava)
Unfined and unfiltered, Ćilibar may contain some sediment and CO2 in the bottle.
