Winemaker`s notes:

Deep, vibrant and clear lemon-yellow colour with reflections of greenish. Luxuriant and stabile scent, medium intensity and multilayered. At first, ripe fruit, peaches in particular, nectarine and bananas but then, very soon, nuances of toasted bread and fresh bread. These are followed by herbal notes of grass and favourable citruses assuring the impression of freshness. On the palate multitude of layers even more present then on the nose: at beginning, wine gives herbal freshness with grapefruit and other citrus fruits. In the middle - creamy, full and vivacious, typical for fully ripe wine. Finish is salty in a way, pleasantly bitter, returning the flavours of grapefruit and other citruses. Taste is very durable and long. When poured into a glass, wine develops more and more up to half an hour after the opening, which means its aging potential is longer than at several previous vintages.

Combining with food:

Scampi risotto, mushrooms risotto, white fish, salmon, shells – St Jacques. Pasta with sea food, chicken with creamy sauces, grilled vegetables, "fuži" with lighter sauces. White meat.

Aging potential:

Best from 2014 to 2017.
