Alen Bibich has long been one of our favorite wine producers in Croatia. Located in the Skradin part of Northern Dalmatia, his lithe, minerally reds have a freshness uncommon to the Read More...
reds from the more famous growing areas to the south. The R6 is a roughly equal blend of native red varieties Babich, Plavina, and Lasin aged 12 months in new American oak. All are part of the large Zinfandel family of grapes native to the region. Under 13% alcohol, the wine is lifted and high toned despite the time spent in barrel. Starting with a gentle nose of cherry kirsch and tobacco, the wines is elegant but also savage, reminiscent of red wines of the Veneto or even old school Chianti. Exceptionally food friendly this will pair with anything from goat cheese to smoked meats.

Although wine has been made in Croatia since the time of the Ancient Greeks, the Croatian wine industry really took off after the Republic of Croatia declared its independence from Read More...
Yugoslavia in 1991. Croatia’s best known red wine is made from the Plavac Mali grape, a relative of Zinfandel. The Dingac Winery is located on the southern slopes of the Peljesac Peninsula along Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. The 2012 Peljesac (100% Plavac Mali) displays the dark berry fruit and mild spiciness of a California Zin without the heaviness or high alcohol found in some from the Golden State. On the nose you find spice, black pepper and blackberry notes which lead to sweet cherry fruit and light spice in the mouth. This is a fruit forward, uncomplicated red with the flavors of a Zin and the body of a Beaujolais Village. The slight hint of sweetness on the finish makes this a good red to serve with cheese and crackers. It will also go well with burgers, pizza, grilled sausages and barbecued chicken.

DRY WHITE

From the importer's website: "For thousands of years, humans have relaxed on the Mediterranean island paradise of Krk, and drank its wines. Once planted to 250,000 hectares of vineyards, Read More...
today there are just 250; 95% of which are planted to the native white varietal Zlahtina. Vigneron Ivica Dobincic is the biggest champion of this grape, and is actively re-introducing other varietals as well." The bright red rose on the label is one of the Sipun- the wild roses that dot the hillsides on the island. "Easy-going, relaxed, breezy: the sort of wine best sipped lazily with briny hors d'oeuvres. Sipun is charming, with subtle peach, gardenia, and sea air notes giving a savory quality as well; balanced, mineral and low enough acid to make it gulpable." Lovely alone, it would also pair well with hard cheeses, fish, herb-infused dishes, and roast chicken.
