The Decanter bronze went to Feravina for three red and one white wine, and Enosophia confirmed the quality of its new wines by winning three bronze medals.
Among 18,244 rated wines from 54 countries around the world, Miraz Frankovka 2018, a wine produced from the traditional Feričanci wine variety Frankovka, was rated with a high 94 points, which secured a silver medal for this top wine.
“For many years we have been investing in the development and improvement of the quality of Frankovka, so this year’s Decanter silver medal is the most beautiful award for our work and effort. In previous years, we won medals with high points, but 94 points won for Miraz Frankovka in 2018 is the highest number of points so far. At the same time, our Miraz Frankovka, according to the strict criteria of the commission, is the best rated red wine of continental Croatia from this year’s Decanter, and all this gives us the wind in our backs for further work,” said Lucija Kužir, head of viticulture and wine production Feravina and Enosophia.
Nearly 250 international wine experts evaluated wines from six continents over two weeks, including bronze awards for Miraz wines for Miraz Cuvee 2017, Miraz Cabernet Franc 2017, Miraz Syrah 2017, and Miraz Graševina 2019.
The new wines of Enosophia also won bronze awards. Graševina Trs No. 5 from 2021 scored 88 points, rose Matarouge from 2021 was rated with 87 points, as well as red quality wine Rubi Fusion from the 2021 vintage.
“These awards are a confirmation of the excellence of our wines and the good direction of the winery’s development. Therefore, we are glad that our efforts and quality have been recognized by some of the best sommeliers and wine experts in the world. One of our goals is to strengthen Slavonia’s stronger position on the international wine scene, especially through the production of Frankovka, the red queen of our vineyards, which is highly valued among European wine producers. In previous years, our wines have won Decanter awards, and each of them is a motivation to further improve our work and set new goals in wine production,” said Ivan Maričić, director of Osilovac, which includes Feravino and Enosophia.
