Brought to the tasting by Kutay Erbayat. From the best parcels in the Schlossböckelheimer Kupfergrube vineyard, featuring southern exposed terraces on an old copper mine in the Nahe. Brass coloured with green highlights. Displays an elegant toasty edge to the distinct mineral core and aromas of preserved lemon. Mid weight featuring intriguing citrus flavours and a razor sharp acidity that together create a long, penetrating finish.
Offered this in a double blind tasting to ten seasoned tasters and really enjoyed their response. One immediate comment was that this showed red berry aromas like wild strawberry and raspberry and he would think that this is red unless he had seen the brass colored liquid in the glass. A second one shouted: ‘Uludağ Gazozu’ referring to the raspberry flavoured quintessential Turkish fizzy drink. The first ever white wine made from the peculiar Thracian variety Papaskarası features a funky nose with a rich array of red berries joined by elderflower, cinnamon and cloves. Almost full with bright flavours expanding on the palate until its vigourous and persistent finish.
Brass in colour tinted slightly by a copper tone. Intense and layered aromatics here with a solid core of golden apple and pear accented with white peach and apricot and touched by scents of honeysuckle. Expressive, rich and complex offering a wide spectrum of intense fruit lifted well by its marked acidity. Ends long and riveting.

Or this one?

As I mentioned in the other comment, I'm trying to fix Croatian entries.
This one here's a problem.
"Bijelo Suho Vino" just means "White Dry Wine" and isn't a producer... As there are different producers of Žlahtina on Krk, I can't nail it, so... if you remember anything else or have a pic or something, or think you might identify it on sight, it would be of huge help.
