Korak winery started production of sparkling wines in 2013. applying the traditional Champagne method. Rosé nature is made of 100% Pinot Noir. Matured for 3 years on its own lees.
Korak's strategy in production of sparkling wines is to make them mature on their own to their best version, avoiding any artificial additives in order to speed up the process. This makes their wines particularly dry, mineral and fresh.
Plešivica, the hill near Zagreb, is knows for the production of sparkling wines in Croatia, Riesling and Sauvignon Blancs. It's microclimates across the hills and it's soil make ideal location for the production of these sorts of wines.
Review by Exotic Wine Travel on Vivino:
Blanc de Noir made from Pinot Noir. Aggressive bubbles. Strawberry and lemon flavors, more fruity than yeasty. Tight structure and a long finish. Methode traditionelle from one of Croatia's better producers. 4.0
