Content: (3x white, 3x red)
• 1x Bolfan Sauvignon Blanc, this is a very balanced biodynamically produced white wine from the Zagorje region in northern Croatia. Its beautiful freshness and minerality in combination with a lot of (tropical) fruit makes this an excellent aperitif wine that also has many gastronomic options.
• 1x Feravino Classic Chardonnay, Did you know that the Chardonnay has one Croatian ancestor? DNA research has shown that the Chardonnay is a cross-breed between the French grape Pinot Noir and the native Croatian grape, Štajerska Belina. Feravino Classic Chardonnay comes from the eastern inlands of Croatia. It is a very easy to drink balanced dry white wine with beautiful acidity and refined aromas.
• 1x Bolfan Pinot Sivi, The Pinot Sivi is really just Pinot Gris, because Sivi means "gray" in Croatian. It is a delicious fresh easy to drink white wine that pairs perfectly with many dishes.
• 1x Medea Merlot, This merlot from winery Medea is a red wine for everyone. The wine has lots of fruit and is beautifully balanced with the slight spiciness and the soft pleasant tannins.
• 1x Feravino Dika Zweigelt, we know the variety Zweigelt from Austria of course but this wine is one of the top-quality red wines from the continental wine regions of Croatia.
• 1x Medea Cabernet Sauvignon, This soft and pleasant Cabernet Sauvignon from Istria is everyone's friend. It can be used as an aperitif, goes well with cheese and also pairs perfectly with meat and vegetarian dishes.
