Tasting Notes

The Miraz Graševina is greenish-yellow with golden reflections in the glass. The nose is expressive and fruity with apple and apricot dominance. The palate is full, creamy and complex with a nice balance of alcohol, sweetness and acidity. Green almonds, honey and beeswax notes add to the complexity and lingering finish.

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.

Manual harvest. This is a careful blend of wine made from both fresh and dried Graševina grapes. The best fresh grapes were cooled, separated from their stems and macerated for 12 hours at 4°C. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 17°C, followed by maturation on fine yeast sediment for thee months without malolactic fermentation. Blended to this was wine made from dried bunches of Graševina that were pressed without stem separation in order to preserve complexity and aromatic stratification. Fermentation of these dried berries was carried out at 18°C, followed by lees maturation for three months in barrels made of Slavonian oak.
