Description

Made from four single vineyards consisting of different soils/terroir – “white”, “grey”, “red”, and “black”*

Straw gold in colour. On the nose, apricot, acacia blossom, and a hint of spice come through. A full flavoured juicy wine, with a refreshing mineral-driven finish. This is a real food wine – it pairs well with fish, seafood, chicken, grilled dishes, white sauce pasta, and game

*Four soils or 4 Terre is Cattunar’s most important project. 
Five scientists from the Faculty of Agriculture in Zagreb and College in Rijeka (Department of Poreč) have identified four different types of soil which are typical of western Istria’s vineyards:

Grey soil (a dusty soil with 25% active lime) can be found in Žmergo.

Black soil (a predominantly black soil on marl) can be found in Škrinjari.

Red soil (typical Istrian terra rossa) can be found in Grum.

White soil (a soil composition similar to a grey soil, but with an even higher percentage of active lime, about 27 or more) can be found in Škarlina.
