Eclat Le Premier
Éclat Le Premier is the first exclusive coupage that perfectly combines the finest autochthonous white wines from Croatian vineyards - Istrian Malvasia, Dalmatian Pošip and Slavonian Graševina.
In our desire to combine the best, we extracted the potential of the terroir and the purity of every variety, which intertwined give the wine playfulness, but also thoughtfulness, making it the most prestigious white wine that represents Croatia in a glass.
Éclat Le Premier was awarded 89 points by Decanter this year and described as a wine that is savoury on the nose, reminiscent of herbs, ripe yellow fruit, and apple. Taste delights with its refreshing crisp, which is accompanied by a rich texture and a pleasant and long-lasting aftertaste.
The combination of three varieties in Éclat Le Premier creates a unique harmony of taste and aroma. Each variety contributes with its characteristic elements, creating a complex and refined taste, emphasizing the best of Graševina, Malvasia and Pošip.
Chardonnay originally comes from Burgundy. The analysis determined that this variety was created by a natural cross between Pinot and the old variety Gouais Blanc, or as it is called in the northern continental part of Croatia, Biela belina velika. A wine that refreshes but at the same time fills the palate with divine flavors.
This variety produces wines that are extremely fruity, light and fresh, but it can also produce complex wines with a harmonious and rounded taste. Such an example is Chardonnay Eclat 2013 — a superb wine originating from Slavonia.
Chardonnay Eclat 2013 wine is characterized by a pronounced straw yellow color. The aromas are fruity and varietal recognizable - you can feel apple and traces of herbal notes. The taste is strong and harmonious and leaves a long-lasting and persistent retro taste. Part of the wine was aged in barrique barrels, which resulted in roundness and fullness of aroma and taste. Delicate aromas of smoke and vanilla come to the fore, which complete the experience that this wine provides.

In the world of vines, a prominent place is occupied by one group of varieties that are connected by an important characteristic - varietal aroma. These are Muscats. What all the varieties bearing the prefix muscat are characterized by is a special muscat smell. Muscat varieties are characterized by different properties, we have them in all colors (black, white, pink, red) and for different purposes (wine, drying and toothpicks), but they all have one thing in common, which is the presence of a muscat smell.
Muscat yellow is a variety that produces very delicious wines, golden yellow in color, and with the frequent high residue of unfermented sugar and a pronounced muscat aroma, it makes an extremely interesting dessert wine. But in addition to the potential for the production of dessert wines, Muscat also has the potential for the production of wines in all quality categories. Muscat yellow Eclat is a semi-sweet premium wine, the aromas that dominate are the aromas of flowers, especially the aromas of roses with tones of candied citrus fruits. Sweetness, but also nicely balanced freshness make this wine perfect with fruit cakes and desserts.
