Tasting Notes

A wonderful, everyday House White brimming with bright orchard and citrus fruit. The palate is soft, mid-weight and slightly oily with gentle acids and a salty, mineral-inflected finish.
Varieties

The everyday wine of Central Europe, Graševina is also known as Welschriesling. It is one of the most popular white wine grapes in Croatia, and is so common that it is widely considered to be indigenous. Graševina is a dry, fresh, aromatic white wine with apple-like notes.
Region

Feričanci municipality is located in the western part of Osijek- Baranja county. The Mur river marks the northern edge of the region until it flows into the Drava, the longest of the Danube’s tributaries.
Vineyard

Feravino currently owns 160 hectares of vines, in three locations: Feričanci (3 km away from the cellar-processing location); Zoljan (12 km away from the cellar-processing location); and Ceremošnjak (24 km away from the cellar processing plant). All locations are located on the slopes of Krndija and divided into small microlocations separated by woods and other natural barriers.
Winemaking

Grapes are machine-harvested, crushed and pressed gently to stainless steel tanks. Fermentation lasts 12-14 days followed by 6 weeks on gross lees. Lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
