QUICK FACTS

There are less than 70 total hectares of Škrlet planted in the world, all of it in central Croatia, which makes it a rare and special wine.

Škrlet is the perfect refreshing wine, with good natural acidity, great balance and high minerality in combination with beautiful nose which resembles of meadow flowers, honey, lime-tree, a hint of light spices and citrus finish.

Škrlet is great pairing with all kinds of food, from light meat (great with all poultry), fish and seafood to light and dry, salty cheeses.

The vintage was warm and dry, with below average rainfall and high summer temperatures. This was a relatively easy viticultural season that ended with earlier pick dates. The grapes were fully ripened, with somewhat high potential alcohol, but also very good acidity and pH. Balance and harmony were achieved in the cellar after a longer maturation time than usual.
