Kosovec Frankovka Selection 2018

kosovec-frankovka-selekcija
- +
$32.75218,77 HRK

Young and talented natural winemaker, Ivan Kosovec is working on a revival of Škrlet, an indigenous varietal from the region of Moslavina. It was a vine that only grows in this hilly area and nowhere else in the world, the grape is an unknown varietal outside of this region. The grape has tiny red “freckles” so Škrlet is derived from the German word “scharlach”, meaning a speckled or dotted surface that are reminiscent those of a Scarlet fever rash. Driven by his passion on hands off winemaking Kosovec made this ordinary, almost forgotten, table grape into something extraordinary not only reviving the planting of more vines but also the elevation of taste and structure of days past.

Selekcija (selection) means exactly how it sounds – manually selected grape bunches vinified separately. Hand selected healthiest grapes of Blaufrankisch undergo spontaneous fermentation and ageing in neutral 1000L oak barrels. Kosovec achieves balanced and versatile red wine with fuller body and very aromatic. Spices, dark berries and earthy aromas are forming the picture of a beautiful Frankovka with significant ageing potential.
