Petrač Karizma 2011
Petrač Winery was the first in Zagorje to introduce red Bordeaux grape varieties, with which it has had considerable success at international and local competitions. Thanks to Petrač's vision, today these varieties are recognized and recommended for the whole Zagorje region. All the characteristics that define Zagorje terroir allow Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to retain their vital acids even in late autumn, giving the grapes the opportunity to ripen completely and evenly. These God-given conditions require yield reduction, achieved through green harvest. This kind of selection guarantees quality, making Hršak breg recognized as a premium terroir for Bordeaux varieties in the heart of "white" Zagorje.

Ruby red with intense purple reflection. Karizma is the flagship wine of Petrač Winery, a Bordeaux blend with predominant Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Plums and cherries, blueberries and blackcurrant form the basis of a fruity aromatic profile. The wine is dry, but juicy and well-balanced, with a full body and silky texture. Tannins are mature and abundant, intensifying the experience with each new "bite&qupt” into the elegant structure of this young Bordeaux-style blend from the hills of Zagorje, central Croatia. Must-try for hedonists
