Boris’s tip: Very interesting and good white wine with wild berries aroma. At the same time is fresh and strong.
Vitovska grganja is an indigenous variety of grapes from the Karst. The wine produced from it is a fresh white with a peculiar taste and scent of wild berries and a bouquet of wild flowers. Maceration lasts one day, while fermentation takes place in wooden barrels for another year.
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.
