Located in the eponymous manor near Sveti Ivan Zelina, Nespeš winery is a small place for big wines. The piedmont sunny hills of Švarcovina accentuate the ideal conditions of Zelina’s wine-growing region.
When it’s a good winemaking year, this region provides oenologists with the pleasure of making superior quality wines. With an always seductive bouqet, nice acids that make it exceptionally palatable, Traminac Nespeš is frequently found on English tables. The wine contains 6 to 8 grams of residual sugar which is enough for the wine not to be too sweet, yet is has a rich, full taste and goes great with noble fish and white meat dishes.
Light, elegant and sophisticated Nespeš Chardonnay should be served with white meat and fish dishes, while the 2003 barrique was the first wine in a special diplomatic wine series whose godfathers where members of the diplomatic corps in the Republic of Croatia.
Gentle yet fresh Zlatni Silvanac with discrete floral aromas is best when it’s young because it doesn’t accumulate acids well and they’re important for wine longevity. It’s bound to be excellent with freshwater fish, but be sure to try it with kale and salty desserts such as pumpkin štrukli or gibanica and strudels. If it’s a good year and special care is taken in the cellar, Zlatni Silvanac makes an excellent superior quality wine candidate, and they’ve got the necessary expertise at Nespeš to perform this complex task.
