Winery Ahearne Wine
Country Croatia
Region Dalmatia
Variety Plavac mali
Category Red wines
Bottle size 0.75 L
Production 4.000
  • Raisins
  • Herbs
  • Plum
  • Dark Chocolate

After careful vineyard selection, the grapes are handpicked and crushed into 500kg open fermentation vats. The grapes are hand plunged to ensure the extraction of more gentle tannins and aged in French oak barrels with just a little addition of Slavonian oak spiciness. The French oak comes from the forest of Jupiles which has very soft, floral tones which enhances the herbal nature of the Plavac Mali rather than obscuring the fruit. The rich plum and raisin flavors are underpinned by dark chocolate and herbal notes much like its parent, Zinfandel. Minimal filtration and stabilization treatments were used to preserve the flavors and aromas of the wine. Natural sediment may form in the bottle.

With a career in wine spanning over 25 years, Londoner, Jo Ahearne Master of Wine has worked with iconic wineries and retail environments around the globe. She entered the wine trade in the early 1990s with Oddbins in Central London. And after two years went to Australia to work a vintage for Charles Melton, with his iconic Nine Popes and Rose of Virginia wines in the Barossa Valley. She passed her Master of Wine qualification in 2008. The Master of Wine qualification is notoriously difficult – only 396 people have the right to use the lauded letters M and W after their name. Ahearne now makes her own wine, Ahearne Vino, in Hvar, Croatia. Jo produces four wines – a rosé, Rosina, two whites (Pošip and a maceration wine, Wild Skins) and a barrique-aged Plavac Mali, South Side. The grapes for Plavac Mali South Side are planted on predominantly white soil on the southern side of Hvar. The steep, rocky and truly vertiginous vineyard sites overlooking the sea near the village of Sveta Nedjelja combine with the pure southern aspect to allow the sunlight reflecting from the calm Adriatic Sea and the white rocks to fully ripen the fruit and the tannins. No mechanization is used in the vineyard

They uncompromisingly believe in indigenous varieties and invest enormous effort in vineyard and wine cellar while respecting tradition and nature. It is a winery with a long tradition and great passion for winemaking. The microclimate at an altitude of 250 m created by a unique combination of River Krka and the Adriatic Sea. Enriched with the soil formed under the influence of the sea and a river that once ran in that area has produced a lot of limestones and a mixture of different soil that gives minerality and allows creating wines of various styles and qualities. Plavina is from the Dalmatian family, Babic, Plavac mali, Tribidrag and other famous varieties.

At the same time, they bought around 1.6 hectares of old vineyards. Josić Wines are made from authentic Baranja varieties that ripen in ancient vineyards on Banova kosa. The restaurant and winery are located in the ambiance of the so-called Sarduk, in the idyllic Baranja village Zmajevac. Sarduk is a Turkish name for the characteristic opening in the hill with wine cellars buried in the ground, so-called gators. Characteristic for Sarduk is that the temperature is consistent at any time of the year,  between 12 and 15 degrees Celsius. Ideal for wine.

Category Red wines
Bottle size 0.75 L
Alcohol 14 %
  • Vanilla
  • Blackberry
  • Coffee
  • Black currant

This wine has a lovely, deep ruby red color. It is clear and full-bodied. The bouquet opens slowly, and new notes appear with each passing moment, dominated at first with wild blackberry notes followed by blackcurrant, a hint of vanilla, smoke, and dust, ending with ground coffee and leather. The wine is dry, warm, soft, and fresh with soft, finely grained tannins. It is flavourful with prominent minerality and a powerful body. The wine is very well balanced and intense in flavor with a long finish. It is delicious and harmonious, with notes of blackcurrant in the aftertaste.

  • Hamburger
  • Tuna

Kabola Winery is situated in the northwestern Istrian peninsula at 275m above sea level, with a view of the Alps and the Dolomites on one side and the lush greenery of pristine nature and a beautiful sea panorama on the other. Their vineyards are located on Stancija hill near the winery in Kanedolo near Momjan. The soil consists mainly of clay and is rich in marl, which gives the wines their special characteristics. Wine demands the freshness of the underground – it desires peace. In the cellar, the wine is crafted in order to bring out the desired features. Through shorter or longer maceration in oak barrels and amphorae, Kabola grapes gain special notes. The wine produced in amphorae is the crown of Kabola’s work. Nature and earth have endowed them with an entirely new dimension in Malvasia and Teran. Prolonged fermentation in amphorae and aging without removing the marc and the lees until late spring bring out its nobility.

  • Plum jam
  • Black currant
  • Smoky
  • Cedar

Lots of sun and the specific soil of Baranja are responsible for this stylish mature wine. Before the bottling, the wine ages in oak barrels. The wine opens up through an attractive and complex intertwining aromas of black currant and plum jam, with notes of cedar and soft smoky tones. Full and rich in flavor, this wine uniquely interprets the famous variety, giving it its own, specific, Baranja note.

  • Veal
  • Chocolate dessert
  • Cured meat
  • Game meat

Kalazić vineyards are located at Banska kosa (Ban’s hair), to the northeast of Baranja. On the Hungarian border near the mighty Danube. Proximity of Danube significantly affects the microclimate of that area. With sandy soil it creates ideal conditions for the production of healthy and good quality grapes, which is then the basis for obtaining high-quality wines. The grapes were grown in this area since the ancient Roman time. They have called that area Mons Aureus, respectively meaning, Golden Hill. It is interesting that the name of Baranja is in direct relationship with wine. Baranja, translated from the Hungarian means wine mother.

Dingač. The first place in Croatia recognized, in 1961, as an appellation with “Protected Geographical Origin°. The indigenous variety Plavac Mali has been producing the best wines for centuries. Dingač has its own particular path, carved into the mountain by the winegrowers, linking the vineyards to the port of Trstenik. From there, the first wines left for Europe. Dingač has always been the authentic heart of Croatian wine making. The vineyard is planted on goblet type and density of 10.000 plants per hectare. It is very steep and specific, and all work in the vineyard is done by hand. In spite of the very sunny weather, these vines manage to keep balanced acidity and develop layered aromas, specific only for this terroir of Dingač. Special for its triple insolation: from the sun, reflection from sea and reflection from quartz in the soil. After being hand-harvested, this grape goes through double sorting: cluster by cluster, and then berry by berry.
