A blend of Graševina, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurtztraminer that already in 1998 brought first golden Decanter to Croatia. Ever since, Enjingi is making this marvellous, complex, exciting wine.
This is a well balanced, full body wine with intense flavours and aromas of pear, apple, honey, sweet oak, vanilla and spices. The taste if rich and it's finish very long. The strong alcohol is smooth and well in balance. Great ageing potential.

Late harvest grapes. Every grape variety fermented separately only with natural yeast found in the vineyard. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel on 16-17 degrees Celsius. Towards the end of fermentation, the wine is moved into barrique barrels for up to 1 year. Once the fermentation is completed, the wines are blended and naturally stabilised. Finally the wine is bottled for further ageing.
Exotic Wine Travel review on Vivino:
Very impressive off-dry wine that tastes dry. From the Slavonia region in Croatia (continental side) Flavors of petrol, chestnut, leaves, honey, baked apple , rich and you dont feel the high alcohol. Rich mouthfeel and beautiful texture 4.3
