zanosivanovicColor dark gold with shades of red. The smell of sweet pear and honey and mountain wildflowers.In the mouth it is full , heavy and oily, glides on and rolls. Aromatic and sweet, honey, fig and pear.Long finish, sweet-sour pear and little bit of herbal in the background. Real Riesling late harvest, for drinks in small sips.


This is the fifth vintage of this wine that we have tasted, and like all the others, completely different from its predecessors.This could be compared to the classic Austrian dessert “late harvest” Rieslings. 2015 was completely different, much lighter,more cheerful,clear sun’s rays in a bottle, 2014 is different again and so on until the year 2012 which will remain unforgettable for local wine lovers.Note: 500-700 bottles of this wine are produced for own pleasure Gaga Ivanovic, a winemaker known here as the greatest alchemist among the winemakers.So it’s always a holiday when you get to a some bottle.

When my wife described this wine, she said that it was nice and that it made a deep impression like the book “Kite Runner”.
