Green apple, kiwi and petrichor greet you as you nose this charming, off-dry sipper. The palate is medium-weight, but the fresh acidity makes it seem lighter, despite the lees contact adding complexity. Apple, lime and wet stone on the palate, with just a dollop of residual sweetness on the finish. A perfect aperitif wine, but also enjoyable with a wide range of foods, such as garlic sausages or grilled pork chops.
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.
Hand-harvested fruit from selected vines is hand-sorted and de-stemmed before fermentation in stainless steel, using temperature control to avoid malolactic fermentation. The wine spends 3 months on its fine lees to garner complexity, with a gentle fining before bottling.
