The wine is made from old ungrafted vines of Plavac mali organically grown on steep terraced vineyards. It is then fermented with native yeasts. Full bodied, fleshy rose that is big and bold. Aromas of fresh cranberry, cherry, and wild herbs give way to flavors of watermelon, peach, and juicy cherry on the palate. Can stand up to hearty fare and is perfect for grilled red meat. Shop ➞

Rich opaque purple color with aromas of gently crushed berries, wet earth, warm spices like cinnamon, clove, and cardamom.

As it opens up, flavors of raisin and currant become more apparent as well as the secondary aromas of spices and earth. Moderate tannins and a smooth finish complete the experience. Pair with roasted or grilled meat dishes and heavy sauces. Shop ➞
