Every vintage has one wine that I consider the best combination of the variety characteristic and the year when the grape is harvested. This limited series is called PREMIUM wine and I believe you will enjoy it as much as I did when I was making it." - " Jasna Antunović Turk". Vintage 2011! the year of chardonnay! That year, summer was dry and hot and thus did harm to the ripening of some white wine grape varieties, which was mostly premature. Luckily, that cannot be said for chardonnay! The harvest was started earlier than usual and, we were blessed with excellent, pure and healthy must which was vinificated and nourished on yeast (the "sur lie" technology). This wine is characterized by exceptional extracts and its full body or better to say by its strong fruit chardonnay-like flavor,. But also by a light note of oak tree and tannin, which is a consequence of short-term aging in barrels. Full-bodied wine with a great potential for ageing!
