This wine is made of the indigenous variety of the island of Krk, the white Žlahtina, from the location of Supele, not far from the church of St Lucy (Sv. Lucija- the Baška tablet).
Considering the location from which it originates, you will be dazzled by its yellow-green to golden-green color of deeper shades. The aroma reminds one of quince, peach, citrus fruits, roses…The play of acids and sugar shows its elegance, one might say grandeur.
It expresses mineral quality with a fine ending which, refined with the pineapple and ripe grapes provide an elegant sweetness, so it leaves a pleasant taste on the palate of the consumer.
We highly recommend it with all meals containing white meat, fish, pasta and rice with seafood, and also with polenta with fish stew and the famous lamb of Krk.
Food pairing: Calls for seafood, be it musseles, shrimps of white fish. Good with fresh salads too.

Ivan Katunar is one of the most distinguished winemakers from island Krk, where indigenous Žlahtina grapes are planted centuries ago.
His passion is to get the most from this lovely grape. He also plans another ancient grape called Sansigot, which gives nice elegant red wines similar in style to Burgundian Pinot's.
Ideal south-southwest orientation, the sea and excellent ventilation allow organic cultivation in the full sense, with very little need for protective treatment of vines. The microclimate of Baška with its number of sunny hours, with the sea reflecting the sun, and the flatness of the reflection of large limestone surface area enable an insolation above the average and untypical advanced vegetation of the Kvarner region. The ground itself is a mixture of the red soil of sand and stone and the pH is high.
