Iločki Podrumi Graševina Premium 2016 Vrhunsko, is a supreme wine from the localised indigenous version of the Graševina grape, which is grown widely across eastern Croatia (Jancis Robinson takes the view that Croatia or the Danube basin apears to be the mostly likely origin of the Graševina grape) .
Known locally as the “Wine of grace”, a fitting name for a really beautiful wine with a similarly silky mouth feel to a premium Chardonnay. This dry white wine has an excellent balance and a lovely crisp dry taste of fruit with a typical Croatia style and length of finish found in wines from the best Croatian producers.
If you have not tasted Graševina before, this regular award winning wine will not disappoint and will allure you quickly into its charms with its light yellow colour and green reflections in the glass. It has an inviting aroma of green apple and other white fruits on the nose, which are followed through on tasting and a light bitterness on the palate, which is very typical for this variety. On the taste there are also attributes of an Istrian Malvazija Istarska and premium un-oaked Chardonnay, so the fruit and the softness, is balanced with a lovely round finish.
“Taste the place- the true flavors of rich soil and golden summers of the Croatian Danube and its best appellations PRINCIPOVAC where this wine comes from.”
