The chosen bottles are of the 2019 vintage Traminac semi-sweet white wine

(Vesna Stajer, Marketing official at Ilocki Podrumi)
"Our association with the royal court has a long-standing history. In 1953, we were commissioned to deliver 11,000 bottles of Traminac wine, which is a selectively vintage wine sourced from these cellars. Although not entirely consisting of Traminac, it mostly contained the said variety, and was served at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II."
(Ivana Raguz, Chief Oenologist at Ilocki Podrumi)
"The 2019 edition of the Traminac wine selection is a semi-sweet white wine produced from carefully picked grapes with high sugar content. It has a golden-yellow hue and a bouquet that features prominent honey notes. This dessert wine has a unique botrytis character, making it a well-structured and harmonious wine, with an alcohol content of approximately 14.5%."
