Riesling, a variety from which some of the best wines of the world are made, has found a host in Zelina who, with his approach in the vineyard and in the cellar, highlighted its full potential. Tasting Riesling of Posavec Winery, it is easily concluded that there was a complete consensus between variety, climate, soil, microlocation, vineyards and winemakers.

A perfectly clear, lively and accentuated golden yellow color is alluring at first glance. Lazily and slowly spinning in the glass with its oilly texture announcing that this is a great wine.

Very layered and complex scent, precise and varietal. First there is ripe apricot and peach with some spicy nut notes, while tertiary etheric aromas appear in the finish.

Rich and succulent. Taste accompanies the scents, and while acting as a link between them, sensational acidity imposes as the base of this wine. Fine alcohols give a lot of sweetness and match the minerality as well as the freshness thus keeping the wine in perfect balance.

Firm body and profound. Long-lasting taste and elegant. Harmonious and memorable.

It is a good companion for roasted pig, fat rich smoked meat and seafood with a tendency of sweetness, primarily crabs, molluscs and clams.

Serving temperature: 8 - 10 °C
