Boris’s tip: Strong white wine with vanilla aroma. You can also pare it with beef steak.
It is a white wine made from grapes Malvazija and Vitovska Grganja. The cold maceration lasts 3 days, after which the wine is aged in oak barrels for 2 years.
Maceration is the winemaking process where tannins coloring agents and flavor compounds—are leached from the grape skins, seeds and stems into the must. To macerate is to soften by soaking, and maceration is the process by which the red wine receives its red color, since raw grape juice is clear-grayish in color.
