This wine of a strong yellow color with soft gold reflections is characterized by a distinctive autumn quince aroma and a hint of apple and pear. After some ten minutes in the glass, walnut, honey and roast apple flavors are clearly felt. The mouthfeel is dominated by a soft, rounded-off density and a rich, oily texture with fresh citrus elements on the sides of the palate, while the long and delicious finish features touches of apple, honey and walnut. This is one of Croatia’s most complex Graševina wines, reflecting the rich and specific nature of the Baranya terroir.Learn more

Belje’s cuvée with 70 per cent Cabernet and 30 per cent Merlot successfully reflects a recipe which has been untouched for centuries, featuring pronounced fruitiness and juiciness.Learn more
