Region: Slavonija

Gold-Mundus Vini 2020; 90-Michael Godel; 90-John Szabo
Tasting Notes

The 2018 Graševina is light on the nose, offering soft wildflower and hay-like aromas. The palate is brilliant, delivering crisp green apple and lemon flavours up front, transitioning into stony mineral flavours on the mid-palate and finish. The acidity is bright and the mouthfeel is luscious. The finish is fresh and lingering.

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.

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.

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.

The 2018 vintage provided fantastic sugar levels and full phenolic ripeness. Grapes were harvested by hand and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then left on its lees for 3 months in tank to develop extra mouthfeel and texture.
