Grasevina is another name for Welschriesling (no relation to Riesling).  It is the most grown white grape in Croatia. 11.5% ABV.  The label says aged in wood.  Their web site indicates that the wine has been fermented and aged for six months in a large new 2000 liter oak barrel.  Golden in color.  The nose is tight but has some apples and a bit of quince.  Light to medium bodied.  On the palate, the red apples come thru.  A bit flabby.  This wine does seem to have a hint of noticeable residual sugar.  While a bit more acidity would be nice, it is very easy to drink on it own, it will work well with lighter foods. It should probably be consumed over the next few years.
