While the 2017 harvest was exceptionally difficult due to heavy rains in September in most of Croatia, the Danube Basin boasted almost ideal climatic conditions which helped maintain a continuously high quality level of our basic bottled wine. Belje’s Quality Graševina features a soft yellow color with green reflections. It has a rich bouquet dominated by the aroma of freshly picked apple with some citrus and minerality. The taste of this Graševina is juicy, rich and very fresh, with lots of citric acids and crisp texture.
Quality Graševina works well with freshwater fish, small sea fish like anchovy, sand smelt, sardine or picarel and with mussels. It is also a great match with pasta and white sauces, chicken and turkey. In spring it is certainly worth trying with asparagus and young peas and in summer with zucchini, egg-plant and pasta with briefly cooked or fresh tomato sauces.
For two years in a row Belje’s Quality Graševina won silver medals at major international competitions (silver at Mundus Vini for the 2017 harvest after Decanter’s silver medal for the 2016 harvest), in witness of the unique value for money on the Croatian wine market.
Local media have regularly listed Belje’s Quality Graševina among the best wines in its price category.
