Kosovec Škrlet 2012

- +
$8.6458,55 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.

Wine notes

Country Croatia
Region Croatian Uplands
Variety Škrlet
Category White wines
Bottle size 0.75 L
  • Cut green grass
  • Green apple
  • Lemon
  • Spices

This standard Škrlet has a clear pale gold color. The nose is clean, fresh fruit flavors of apple and quince with spicy notes. Thanks to winemakers natural approach to wine production in the vineyard and in cellar the smell of the varietal characteristic is distinct, authentic for Škrlet. Extremely dry, medium-full body, soft acidity with very well fitted alcohols unusually high for this variety. Aromas are allied with fragrant sensation with a slight aspect of minerality. Despite a solid structure, refreshing saltiness and juicy structure contribute to high drinkability of this wine.
