    Description

    Delicately aromatic, pleasantly enticing, with sensory notes recalling apricot, peach, melon and a vague aroma of almond, all unfolding into an extremely elegant. Contains Sulphites.

    About the Producer: Bolfan
    Bolfan Vinski is situated in the municipality of Hrascina, in Croatia's Medimurje - Zagorje region. Historically, this is the heartland of viticulture in the country, with vine-growing dating back several centuries. Today the winery practices bio-dynamic farming and natural winemaking techniques under the expert guidance of head winemaker Luka Koscak, who has lived and worked among Croatian wine all his life.Bolfan's cellar and winery is situated in the middle of their vineyards, ensuring a quick transfer at harvest time between the vineyard and the winery, vital to retaining freshness in the wines. Grape must is settled without recourse to Sulphur Dioxide, and fermentation is carried out using natural yeasts grown on the estate under tight temperature control in order to retain freshness and aromatics.The vineyards lie on hillside sites, at altitudes ranging between 250-380m with a south / south-east facing aspect, ideal for the cultivation of high quality vines. Soils enjoy a naturally neutral PH level of 7.5 and consist of a combination of loose, free-draining loam, marl and limestone which encourages deep root systems, imparting much sought after concentration and minerality to the wines. All grapes are hand-picked, partly due to the difficulty of mechanically harvesting the hillsides, but more importantly to ensure a thorough and consistent selection process.

    Region: Zagorje
    Zagorje, or to give the region its full name - Zagorje-Medjimurje, is a sub-region of inland Croatia, which runs south and east from the eastern tip of Slovenia along the Drava River, a tributary of the Danube. More than two-thirds of the country's production is white wine, and over ninety percent of this is Riesling, but the country is also becoming known as a top producer of other white, especially other aromatic varieties such as Pinot Gris. Wines exhibit an earthy, mineral streak, complemented by full, concentrated aromatic flavours.

    Grape: Pinot Grigio / Pinot Gris
    Pinot Grigio (known in French as Pinot Gris) is an immensely popular white grape variety commonly grown in Italy (Veneto, Lombardy, Alto-Adige and Emilia-Romagna) and in France's Alsace region.High quality examples of this variety display depth of colour (it is a mutation of the Pinot Noir grape and can easily be mistaken as such in the vineyard) and gently perfumed characteristics, while at the lower end of the scale it has been a phenomenal success in producing dry, refreshing and easy-drinking, approachable wines.
