A few of our favorites include:
Bibich Bas De Bas Crno (2015): 90% Syrah, 10% Merlot oaked 2 years, flavors of berries, cherry, blackberry jam – from North Dalmatia – a favorite of Anthony Bourdain! The winery’s premium wine, made only at exceptional harvests.
Volarević Plavac Mali Gold Edition (2016): This Wine Enthusiast 94 rated wine has combined in its flavor all the features of the area where the grapes blossom and the love with which it was originally processed in the family cellar. It has a characteristic ruby red, thick almost opaque color with a dark blue hue that colors the side of the wine glass, consistent with its name Plavac Mali – Little Blue.
Crvik Vilin Ples (2018): Cabernet sauvignon – Merlot – Plavac. Worldwide known varieties have created here a truly exquisite wine along with local Plavac. Fruit scent and dark fruit aromas, a strong body, and light tannins are the characteristics of the first Cuvée from the area of Konavle south of Dubrovnik.
Kabola Muškat Momjanski (2020): Playful and effervescent on the nose, presenting first with a dominant flowery note, followed by juicy nectarine, lychee and a hint of meadow honey. The wine is semi-dry, partly warm and partly soft, while retaining a lovely freshness and delicious flavor with medium body. It is well-balanced and intense in flavor with a long finish. It is flavorful, harmonious and highly drinkable with notes of apricot in the aftertaste.
These and more than 80 Croatian wines from all wine regions can be ordered online at www.CroatianPremiumWine.com and shipped to most US states.
