IlIločki Podrumi Traminac Premium 2015 (Gewürztraminer) Vrhunsko is from one of the best EU Protect Domains of Origin (PDO) ‘Hrvatsko Podunavlje’ of single estate vineyards on the Croatian Danube. Deliberately reduced yields, hand picked grapes from the best vineyard positions is the start for the white wine that is fermented in Inox vats for 8-12 days at temperatures of 18-20°C and then aged in Inox vats for a further 12 months. Before release to the market the wine rests further in the bottle for 1 month. The result is a wine that has a freshness, clarity, purity and smoothness that delivers the true Croatian wine tasting experience – pleasure.

Principovac is a special microclimate position and appellation of the Croatian Danube where the grapes are picked from the best vines for the Iločki Podrumi ‘Premium’ wines.

The vines on the Principovac appellation are 190m to 200m above sea level, mostly on plateaus facing North-west. Constant breezes from the Danube assure good health condition of the grapes and therefore minimum treatment is needed.

The soil is chernozem and regosol base on alluvial-diluvial sediment loess, which allows the roots of the vines to go deep into the soil and gaining enough moisture from the subterranean waters of the Danube, even during long, dry and hot summers. The right bank of the river Danube is actually very close to the vineyards, less than 1.5 km as the crow flies.
