Only 4,0, 4,5 and 5,0 NJP wines (Nenad Jelisic Points) are presented as the best vintages.

 

From October 2010, every time we update any information or write a new information, we shall write in parentheses when the update has last taken place e.g. (2010-10).

 

If for some wine stands behind the best vintages none, it means that the wine's price is too high for its quality or the wine's quality is too low.

Tannins, tannins or tannic acids are so-called polyphenol, a chemical substance that exists in in the grapes' skins, stems and seeds, but not in the grape juice. The softest tannins are found in the skins while the most powerful are found in the stems and seeds. In the past it was common to have the stems included during the fermentation process, but nowadays it rarely happens because most wine producers want to avoid the aggressive and powerful tannins that are in the stems. The same applies when the grapes are pressed, they are pressed softly to avoid the aggressive and powerful tannins found in the seeds. During the wine fermentation, the softer tannins and dyes are extracted from the skins. To the grapes with high tannin content belong Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Nebbiolo while to the grapes with low tannin content belong Pinot Noir, Merlot and Gamay. The tannins are experienced in the wine in different ways, if they are soft, they give a soft and warm astringent feeling in the mouth and if they are powerful and aggressive, they give a woody, bitter, dehydrated and astringent mouthfeel. One can say that the tannins are the backbone of the wine, they "hold the wine together" and give the wine aging potential. The tannins are also good for health because they prevent calcification in the arteries and through that reduce the risk of heart attack. (2012-06)
