New wine of old; this is the almost forgotten indigenous variety Crljenak Kaštelanski. After many years of genetic and ampelographic research CK has proved to be the North American variety Zinfandel. The wine has an intense ruby color with pronounced varietal aroma that ranges from discrete flower to strong mixed berries. A luscious yet firm palate full of fresh fruit, with a refreshing and savory finish.
From the vineyard Vinogorje Makarska, in Dalmatia, Croatia. Alcohol 14.5%. 18 months in barrique.
