I’ve been aiming for this bottle for half a year. I happened upon it when it was singled out on discount. At home I gave it a better look… is this not the wine from 2011 that was dry with 14 and a bit of alcohol? The superior stamp stands out.
The described scepticism before opening a bottle is usually not a good sign. The contents did not fail me though.
Good nose… quince! Very nicely cautioned wine. Sip and disbelief. I can’t feel the sugar residue that would declare this wine as semi-sec, considering the dryness is not a required label anymore… This one is quite stable, calm, serious and… dry!? At least organoleptically.
I was ready to insult the wine, but this is good. In line with my recollection of a previous tasting of a declared dry wine with a mineral signature from a special position Stošinec in the Plešivica wine hills.
In fact, it has a certain reductive mineralogy. It is saturated with an acidic-mineral character and original wine aromas with an interesting petroleum after!? Quite serious for an unpretentious wine so the price seems impossible. Penetration and persistence instead of surface aroma.
On the other hand, instead of being puzzled, this is how at least half of Graševina’s should be, simple, good, true Graševina, not a sour version. Not many of those today.
