Cork smells fresh and infused with sweet syrup. Water cress, wet grass, green apple, and touch of sweet citrus aromas. Buttered popcorn, toffee, dried apricots and some lychee. Weighty white with floral notes on the long finish. Different and yummy. Tasted Feb/2012.

The most widely planted white grape variety in Croatia is Graševina. It is also known as Welchriesling in Austria and is of no relation to the traditional Rieslings from Alsace and Germany that we are more familiar with.
The nose is filled with a combination of floral and stone mineral notes intertwined with an unusual honeyed sort of apricot twist. As it rolls across your palate, the slightly exotic taste is clean, refreshing and finishes with just a touch of spice. Serve this well chilled and enjoy it with cold salads. Tasted Feb 2012.

Light gold in the glass with apricot, a bit of pineapple, floral notes, and lychee on the nose. It's medium-full bodied and has nice acidity to keep it refreshing and has a long, spicy finish. First bottle of Croatian wine and it's not too shabby. Tasted March 2012.

I suppose there is a mineral taste to this wine, but not in a good way. Other than that, I do not relate to the other reviews at all. I view this as no more than cooking wine. Give this one a miss.
