Zlati Grič – Konjiška Rosé – Trophy First Date

5th December 2017


Congratulations to Zlati Grič with their Konjiška Rosé which received a Trophy at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.

A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as First Date: “The perfect wine to accompany that first date, fruity and slightly off dry to enhance that special occasion. Nothing too complex and not necessarily a wine that needs to pair with exact foods.

This wine is one of Zlati’s most recent success stories made only from the first pressing juices.

It ripe five months in steel and then rests on the leaves one year in the Charterhouse’s cellar. The distinctive characters of this sparkling are red-fruit aroma, acidity and mineral’s notes. Because its easy-drinkable and fresh nature it’s very suitable for aperitifs and toasts accompanied with small food bites / canapes.

Grape: Blue Franconian

Congratulations for this Trophy must go to Zlati – Our judges were facing a whole new system of scoring and had to select from many the ideal sparkling wine to have on that special first date – Slovenian wine is the new romantic bubbly, step aside Champagne!” Christopher Walkey
