Selena is certified organic orange wine from the grape variety Tamjanika that is endemic to Serbia, Macedonia and Bulgaria. “Selena”, apart from being a beautiful female name, means Moon in Greek and this name and the picture of full moon on the label is a tribute to biodynamic principles applied in growing Tamjanika that goes into Selena.
Golden color comes from prolonged skin contact and suggest richness in aromas and taste. The expectation is fully satisfied with aromas of ripe peaches, apricots and a hint of dried hay. After a while, elderberry starts to dominate, typical for Tamjanika variety.
Full bodied with ample acidity Selena has a long finish, with aftertaste of roasted hazelnuts and walnuts, with just a hint of astringency.
Selena improves with aeration and decanting it an hour before drinking will give the best satisfaction to all the senses.
Selena served with food is best enjoyed not too cold, at 9ᴼC-11ᴼC. For aperitif it should be somewhat chiled, at 7ᴼC -9ᴼC. Pair it with goat cheese, as well as those with blue and green mold, skewered lamb, grilled squid and chocolate mousse.
Unfined and unfiltered, Selena may contain some sediment and CO2 in the bottle.
