Antunović Pinot Noir 2015
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. 75% of Antunović Winery's assortment consists of white wine varieties (Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Sylvaner, Muscat Ottonel and Chasselas). And 25% of red wine varieties (Pinot noir, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon). The winemaking facility also includes a wine tasting room where guests can enjoy homemade culinary specialties with wine.
Being the favorite variety of most tenuous wine lovers, this red wine may in good vintages arouse extraordinary sensations. Profound wine with the medium ruby color, with the aromas of sour cherry, strawberry, and cherry, characterized by light tannins and soft acid. Ripening in barrique barrels highlights notes of vanilla and oak, so the wine is rather full-bodied. While inox barrels ensure freshness and softness. Pinot Noir ripens relatively early and has well-adapted to the vineyards of Erdut. The recommended serving temperature is 16°C. The wine goes best with fish, poultry, particularly duck, veal with gravy, pork, beef, lamb, game-foul, hard cheese, and mushrooms.
