The harvest that gave the best wines and also the best harvest in the previous twenty years (2011). Extremely favourable weather conditions in that year made possible a significantly reduced yield of the grapes and its extraordinary quality. In the grape ripening stage, the berries were dried on the grapevines. It contributed to exquisite concentration and richness of luscious flavours, polyphenolic and colloid substances which were transformed into wine by the state-of-the-art equipment. Considering the selction of the grapes, manually picked from special locations of ćemovsko polje, it is clear why this wine shows lusciousness and opulence of the varieties themselves as well as the terroir.
