Šipon - who wouldn't love you?

When we offer a good shipon, the excellent one, late in autumn torn chipo, almost everyone, a slead or an ignorant drinker, enthusiastically nods. Great wine! Why is this the case, even if people try this wine for the first time in their lives, whose name is hard to get off their tongues at first?

Šipon is distinguished by its pleasant fruity smell (ripe pineapple), the stuffing of green almonds, hazelnuts, even mowed grass and seine, or maybe someone's smell even resembles olive oil and a fish floating in it!
