Tasting Notes

Iločki Podrumi Graševina Premium 2016 Vrhunsko, is a supreme wine from the localised indigenous version of the Graševina grape, which is grown widely across eastern Croatia (Jancis Robinson takes the view that Croatia or the Danube basin apears to be the mostly likely origin of the Graševina grape) .


Known locally as the “Wine of grace”, a fitting name for a really beautiful wine with a similarly silky mouth feel to a premium Chardonnay. This dry white wine has an excellent balance and a lovely crisp dry taste of fruit with a typical Croatia style and length of finish found in wines from the best Croatian producers.


If you have not tasted Graševina before, this regular award winning wine will not disappoint and will allure you quickly into its charms with its light yellow colour and green reflections in the glass. It has an inviting aroma of green apple and other white fruits on the nose, which are followed through on tasting and a light bitterness on the palate, which is very typical for this variety. On the taste there are also attributes of an Istrian Malvazija Istarska and premium un-oaked Chardonnay, so the fruit and the softness, is balanced with a lovely round finish.


"Taste the place- the true flavors of rich soil and golden summers of the Croatian Danube and its best appellations PRINCIPOVAC where this wine comes from."

Details

Iločki Podrumi Graševina Premium 2016 Vrhunsko is from one of the best EU Protect Domains of Origin (PDO) 'Hrvatsko Podunavlje' of single estate vineyards on the Croatian Danube. Deliberately reduced yields, hand picked grapes from the best vineyard positions is the start for the white wine that is fermented in Inox vats for 8-12 days at temperatures of 18-20°C and then aged in Inox vats for a further 12 months. Before release to the market the wine rests further in the bottle for 1 month. The result is a wine that has a freshness, clarity, purity and smoothness that delivers the true Croatian wine tasting experience – pleasure.

Principovac is a special microclimate position and appellation of the Croatian Danube where the grapes are picked from the best vines for the Iločki Podrumi ‘Premium’ wines.

The vines on the Principovac appellation are 190m to 200m above sea level, mostly on plateaus facing North-west. Constant breezes from the Danube assure good health condition of the grapes and therefore minimum treatment is needed.

The soil is chernozem and regosol base on alluvial-diluvial sediment loess, which allows the roots of the vines to go deep into the soil and gaining enough moisture from the subterranean waters of the Danube, even during long, dry and hot summers. The right bank of the river Danube is actually very close to the vineyards, less than 1.5 km as the crow flies.
