Typical for 19th century Bordeaux wines, blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (which is quite specific for Rhone Valley), proof once again it’s full exuberance. Intense aromas of ripe black and red fruits (from Merlot and Cabernet), are in perfect harmony with dark chocolate and lavender aromas (from Syrah). Aging in oak, not only gives one more aromatic layer to wine complexity but has a quite positive influence on its overall balance.

Erdevik Winery is located in the village of Erdevik, region of Syrmia (present-day Serbia) in western foothills of Alma Mons (Fruska Gora). Surrounded by a mild hillside in Fruska Gora, vast plains in the south and located at 140 meters above sea level, Erdevik, with its three lakes is one of the most beautiful villages in the region of Syrmia (Srem). In 1697 most Syrmia province and therefore Erdevik became part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and were ruled by Italian nobility of Odescalchi family who aided King Leopold I defend the city of Vienna during the Ottoman siege. Name of the village Erdevik was derived out of Hungarian word ERDOVEG meaning forested area. In Erdevik first vines were planted in 276 during the reign of Roman emperor Probus. In the early nineteenth century village of Erdevik had many vineyards, so count Livio Odescalchi built a cellar and a winery. Present-day Erdevik winery is a synergy of tradition and modern approach to winemaking where premium wines are produced exclusively from an estate owned vineyard located on the right bank of river Danube.

The grapes for this wine was picked a bit later than usual. The maceration was done for three days. After that, the fermentation was started in stainless steel barrels. Then, after 30% fermentation, the wine was put into new barrels of French oak, where the wine was aged for 10 months. Distinct aromas of jasmine, ripe green apple, and floral nose. A lovely development of honey, vanilla, and oak on the palate. Beautifully structured.

On the west coast of Istria, grapes are grown on “terra rossa”, red soil. While Santa Lucija is “breathing” the white Istrian soil, the mother of extraordinary wines and above all the unique Buje Malvazija. From this “white” soil comes Franković wine selection. It has always been known that the Malvazija from Buje surroundings is distinguished by exceptional quality. But with Franković distinctive Malvazija, Teran, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, and Cabernet-Sauvignon are also born in the same Santa Lucia locality.

  • Dark Chocolate

Red Krš is made from 85% Blatina. The profile completes the Alicante Bouschet, which we attribute, among other things, to the fascinating depths of purple-color. Gamay helps accentuate the characteristic Blatina expression of fruitiness. A very thoughtfully shaped wine in which Blatina shows its character much easier. Over time, this wine gets earthy notes that are very often associated with this variety.

Once upon a time, every household in Herzegovina had their own vineyard planted with Žilavka, Blatina, and other autochthonous varieties. The rulers and masters changed, wars happened and the state borders changed, but the wine, remained, and it is a part of the Herzegovinian past, present, and future. This is how the story of Škegro family begins. A story where tradition has been passed from knee to knee to eventually become something that the whole family enjoys doing. Modern approach to traditional, love for vineyards and wine, and a strong desire to offer the spirit of Hercegovina in full glory. Plenty of sunshine, solid stone and healthy ecological footprint, together with the centuries-old tradition, gives top quality wines.
