Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A fullbodied hearty dry red wine from Croatia’s Istria region. Istria is a peninsula located in Croatia’s northeast corner, with a Mediterranean climate and cool breezes from the Alps. Grapes were introduced by the Greeks as early as the 6th century BC, making the region one of the oldest growing areas in Europe. Hand-harvested from the indigenous Teran varietal. Deep purple and intensely fragrant, with dark cherries, prunes and dark chocolate reflecting the ripe grapes from old vines.(32years) Dark and jammy fruit flavours on the palate, along with oak and smokey notes and grippy tannins. Lingering dark fruit and smoke on the finish. Decant then enjoy with grilled meat, ratatouille or hard cheeses. A great wine to enjoy with barbequed meats now or during the winter with hearty stews and roasts.

Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Eye catching bright ruby red with purple hues. Subtle but beautiful red fruit aromas – especially cherry and strawberry – emerged from my glass and were followed by a delicious medium bodied palate that showcased a red fruit core framed with hints of earthiness and cracked peppercorns. Enjoy.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
