This biodynamically produced white Bolfan Zagorski Bregi is a Grote Hamersma 9- Star wine, a wine that excels in price-quality. Zagorski Bregi means 'the hills of Zagorje' and the blend contains the main grapes that grow on the hills of Zagorje: Graševina and Sauvignon Blanc.
Grape: Graševina (welschriesling), Sauvignon Blanc & Rizvanac (Müller-Thurgau)
Taste according to Hamersma: All three together produce a pleasantly fruity and, thanks to the sauvignon, at the same time spring-fresh wine with a cheerful hint of spiciness. Light in alcohol, intense taste, with lovely lime in the aftertaste.
Serve with: This wine is extremely suitable as an appetizing aperitif or as an aperitif. In addition, it goes very well with all kinds of white fish, pork and BBQ.
Ideal serving temperature: 12-14 degrees Celsius.
Alcohol percentage: 11.5%
Additional information: the wine is biodynamically produced and has an ECO label. The wine is suitable for vegans.
The complete review of Hamersma is as follows: Between all the incomprehensible from the national Croatian language there is suddenly 'blend'. That gives guidance. And indeed. Well, partly. This is a blend, a mix, an assembly. Including Sauvignon Blanc.
So much for the obvious part. Because the other grapes in the collaboration are the grasevina, better known to some as welschriesling or riesling italico, and which is not even remotely related to the riesling, while the third in the club is a grape called risvanac here in Croatia , but elsewhere müller thurgau.
The grapes grow in Zagorski Bregi: the hills of Zagorje.
And now that you already speak a little Croatian, it's time for some more Croatian on the tongue. And that takes no effort. All three together, these grapes produce a pleasantly fruity and, thanks to the sauvignon, at the same time spring-fresh wine with a cheerful hint of spiciness. Light in alcohol, intense taste, with lovely lime in the aftertaste.
