Laškovec / late harvest
Rhine Riesling is a variety that produces excellent results in our vineyard. The most widespread variety with the highest potential for Plešivica. Warm days and cold nights give Riesling the ideal ratio of sugar to acid in grapes. KORAK Riesling is excellent for long-term aging in the bottle. Short maceration on the skin of a few days at low temperatures, while spontaneous fermentation takes place in old large wooden barrels on natural yeast. Ages for 12 months on the fine lees.
Riesling from Plešivica generally produces elegant wines with crisp lime, green apple and peach flavors. This attractive Rhine Riesling, which will last for many years, is elegant and pure, already with wonderful aromas that alternate mineral character, intense fresh citrus, wax notes and seductive acacia flower. Although it has depth, still exudes youthfulness and it would be good to keep in your cellar a few more years.
