The 2012 was fermented dry in stainless steel at colder temperatures. It’s a great balancing act of freshness and weight. Ripe fruit, great acid, oily texture, and honeyed notes, locals pair it with thick seafood pastas and roast chicken crusted with Mediterranean herbs.

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.

The 2009 has a nose of red roses, autumn leaves and mushrooms giving way to rich red and black fruit flavors and well rounded tannins. Frano Milos uses natural yeast fermentation and ages the wine for 12 months in neutral Slavonian oak followed by 24 months bottle aging before release.
PODRUMI 12 CRLJENAK ZINFANDEL
$19.98

THIS IS IT... THE "O.G", or rather, the "O.Z.", (Original Zinfandel)

Crljenak Kaštelanski was an almost extinct Dalmatian grape varietal until DNA fingerprinting revealed Read More...
that it was an exact DNA match to both Zinfandel and the Italian grape Primitivo.

The Dubrovacki Crljenak Kaštelanski was planted in 2007 above the village of Cavtat, in a new 12 hectare vineyard called Mrcevlje. The average yield per vine for the 2012 vintage was 1,13 kg. After a 5-day maceration and a 30-day fermentation, the wine spent one year in used oak, a combination of 225 and 500 liters Croatian and Hungarian oak barrels. After 2 months in stainless steel, the wine was bottled without fining or filtering.
