Frankovka is a red grape, quite resistant to cold during the winter, but still needs a lot of sun in the summer, so it’s ideal for the region of Central Europe. In Croatia, it’s traditionally grown in Slavonia, producing lively, fruity, sometimes peppery reds.
Miraz Frankovka is a wine to enjoy at your leisure. A rich ruby, almost purple in colour with an intense flavour which is long lasting and clean. A bouquet of vanilla, pepper and dark chocolate, oak aged and noticeable in the later flavour as a fine spice. Ready to drink young, with good potential for aging.
Ideal companion for cured dried meat and spicy sausage, stews, game, roast lamb, steak and strong cheeses.
Wine with a protected designation of origin (PDO): Slavonija
What experts at https://www.jancisrobinson.com say about our wine
Dark crimson, flushed with deep pink. Lifted (very slight VA), intense, notes of apricot glaze and cured meat on the nose. Burly, compact, ground parma violets and a sweet wood spice giving a lifted, perfumed character. Black cherries, charcoal, dried rose petals and then a fine skein of bitterness, adding to, not detracting from, the whole. An exotic tapestry of flavour. White pepper on a dry, fine-grained finish. Scored at 16.5/20
