|variety||Zeleni Silvanac (Silvaner)|
This white wine grape variety originates from a Caucasian wild grape variety and it was first mentioned in Austria 800 years ago. The name was derived from Roman tutelary deity Silvanus. The wine is wonderful, lovely and extremely soft and arouses incredible sensations. The flavor refers to fresh fruit, wild flowers, and green leaves. The freshness of the wine is opposed to its full-body. This wine perfectly goes with continental Croatia cuisine. It asks for meat dishes, pork, lamb, roast beef, so it is an ideal choice for celebrations and parties. It is best served at temperatures between 10 and 11°C.
