Zdjelarević Classic Rajnski Rizling 2011 (Rhine Riesling)

Vinarija Zdjelarević was founded in 1985, the first private winery in Croatia. Since then it has been one of the most successful family wineries, which also includes a prestigious hotel overlooking the vineyards, which stretch out from the restaurant terrace. The estate has 38 hectares of vineyards which produce six white grapes and six red grapes to create a large selection of single and blended variety wines.

The winery is situated on one of the richest area of continental Croatia within the Slavonia and Danube wine region, to the east of the city of Slavonski Brod in the rural municipality of in Brodski Stupnik. On the north side of the Sava valley, the alluvial clay, with the crushed shells from the ancient Pannonian Sea, provide a highly fertile and structural soil rich in minerals, which together with high temperatures and long warm autumns make almost ideal conditions for growing a wide range of wine cultivars.

Tasting Notes

Zdjelarević Classic Rajnski Rizling 2011 (Rhine Riesling) is a medium dry white that has been produced using a traditional method of vinification and aging process of six months to a year on fine lees (Sur lie).
The wine is strikingly fresh and fruity, but at the same time surprisingly complex. The opulent aromatic structure typical for the type has a broad range of aromas: from flowery (wild rose) to ripe fruit (peach and pear). The wine has good potential to bottle age which allows it to adopt a typical tertiary character of Riesling, with the scent of Indian herbs, toasted almonds and petroleum.
