Granny smith apple, apricot and petrichor (the smell of rain in the summer) on the nose. The apple replays on the palate, as does the stony minerality, joined by some honeydew melon and pink grapefruit notes. A zesty, lively, thirst-quenching, “crunchy” wine for sipping as an aperitif, or serving lightly chilled with a cold cut picnic lunch.

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.
