Tasting Notes

Iločki Podrumi Kapistran Crni Premium 2016 Vrhunsko is a supreme quality red wine cuvée of Frankovka (Blaufränkisch) and Cabernet Sauvignon (Wine). The mouth feel is light but smooth and balanced with a clean quality taste of cherry, raspberry, black currants, and a little pepper for warmth. There is a hint of vanilla on the finish of this very enjoyable fruit led red wine with low tannins.

If you enjoy a good quality Beaujolais Fleurie, although from a different grape, there is a similar character in the Kapistran Crni, but more freshness and much cleaner. An ideal quality summer wine.

"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 Kapistran Crni Premium 2016 Vrhunsko was aged for at least 24 months in Inox vats and then blended with wine matured in oak barrels from the estate's 563 years old wine cellar; then followed by a further 3-6 months of bottle aging to give this relatively young wine surprising depth and presence.

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.
