Decanter World Wine Awards

Two gold medals from the prestigious Decanter DWWA Competition in London ranked Zvonko Bogdan Winery as one of the most prestigious in Serbia.

The highly prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards, which took place in London in early May this year rewarded Cuvee No1 2017 and Icon Campana Rubimus 2017 from Zvonko Bogdan Winery with two gold medals in a competition of over 16,000 wines from around the world. 

In all of Decanter's evaluations so far, wines from Serbia have won two golds in total, one of which also arrived from last year's Cuvee No1. With a total of three gold medals, Zvonko Bogdan Winery became the most prestigious winery in Serbia when it comes to DWWA competitions. In this evaluation, wines from all over the world go through a rigorous tasting of the best wine judges of the world, and the gold medal has been served only for those who are rated more than 95 points. The success of Zvonko Bogdan Winery is the result of a full decade of investment, teamwork and state-of-the-art technology, with continued work to improve the quality, both in the winery and in the vineyards

Zvonko Bogdan Cuvee No1, which is making from grapes of the varieties merlot, cabernet franc and frankovka, won the gold medal last year as well. 

The highest quality of this wine is the absolute refinement of aroma and taste, without any harshness or anything offensive. Complex aromatics range from blackberries, black currants and cherries to the smell of graphite pen and mint tea, and very discreet, noble notes that indicate maturing in truly premium oak. 

Moderately full but firm in the mouth, elegant, rich, layered but not light. The tannins are pleasant, silky and round, just as they should be. The aromas of black cherries, cocoa and plum are long in the tongue. Silky, layered, juicy, harmonious. This wine fits the classic larger Cabernet Sauvignon glass, and decanting it won't hurt either. Serve it at 16 to 18 degrees, with lamb chops, slow-roast veal or duck breast.

Icon Campana Rubimus, is created by carefully blending the most concentrated grapes of merlot and cabernet from the best parts of the vineyard, with strict quality control. The wine aged in French oak barrels, resulting in a sumptuous, layered aroma in which the fruit blends with notes of vanilla, toast and chocolate. Icon Campana Rubimus will show its best after several years of aging. This wine's powerful body is great for snacks such as ramsteak, steak, venison, or aged full-fat cheeses. 

Zvonko Bogdan Winery wines can be found in all the best restaurants in the country, wine shops and shops with quality wine section.
