Antunović Graševina Premium 2013
The mission of Antunović winery is to position itself as a boutique winery with premium wines produced in small quantities intended for real wine lovers! The Antunović winery has a hundred-year-old family tradition of wine growing and wine production. Since planting a new vineyard in 2004, Jasna Antunović Turk, BEc, has taken the family business into "a new wine making age". The winery is located in north-eastern Croatia. In a winemaking region known as Podunavlje – vinogorje (vineyards) Erdut. The exquisite micro climate of the Danube watercourse, fertile and loose soil and equal distribution of precipitation and sunshine all ensure highly favorable conditions for planting various grapevine varieties. 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".

The 2013 vintage was excellent and it gave healthy grapes. Because of that, it was possible to do a longer maceration, cold fermentation in stainless steel and after those 20 months of schooling and aging in Slavonian oak barrels. This gave us a complex and deep wine, elegant and creamy, but still fresh. Aromatically interesting on the primary, secondary and tertiary level. The Welschriesling of 2013 has sharper tones, and it has gained fullness and roundness by aging. It is crystal, pure gold in color; the taste is more intense and longer, with more warm, floral notes and aromas of ripe fruit. "Petrol, honey and quince nose. Mosaic of luscious flavors zip across the palate with pronounced mango, papaya, and lime. Acidity adds structure to this beautifully complex wine. Lingering finish of subtle tobacco and honey. Outstanding." by www.decanter.com
