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

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

  • Cherry
  • Dry plum
  • Fig
  • Game meat

Powerful, rich & spicy with a big bruising body – flavours of tar, game meat, earth and dried-fruits like prunes and figs. There are rich bramble fruit flavours on the middle-palate too. For such a big wine, this has fine tannins and the alcohol is beautifully in balance. Excellent savoury finish.

  • Chocolate dessert
  • Cured meat
  • Steak

Gino and Jadranka fell in love with wine while they lived in France and that is where their unique idea of making their own wine by connecting French winemaking tradition and Croatian grapes was born. G&J wine Tvoja krv i moja (Your Blood and Mine) is a typical Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot .The wine is designed to reflect the harmony of two components: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Family Josić from Osijek in 1999 bought an old wine cellar from 1935. They have restored it, equip it with modern technology while preserving the traditional look of the wine cellar. 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.

  • Game meat
  • Leather
  • Smoky
  • Spices

A deep ruby color, aromas that suggest pronounced fruitiness and elements of spice, leather, smoke, and talk about the potential of wine and a perfect fit. The only way to describe this wine is by using the word “muscular” but meant in a positive way. Intriguing aromas seems to show the meatiness of Merlot but also the rawer meat characters of Syrah. Very fresh acidity, great flavor; firm but balanced tannins. Magnificent. It is necessary to decant the wine which is best served in Bordeaux style glass.

  • Casserol
  • Hard cheese
  • Meat risotto
  • Roasted meat

With a lifetime’s love of great wine, particularly the wines of the Rhône Valley, as well as a passion for the terroir of his native Istria, Mladen Rožanić searched for a long time to find the right terrain on which to plant his vines according to the extensive knowledge he had acquired as he traveled and learned from great winegrowers around the world. Subsequently, 26 hectares of vineyards were planted over a four-year period in west Istria near Višnjan, an ideal region for Mladen’s purposes, thanks to its superb climatic and geological conditions. Roxanich produces natural wines from both indigenous and internationally recognized grape varieties all in line with the highest ecological standards, cultivating the grapes using traditional methods with crop control and minimum intervention. In the winery, mechanical and chemical intervention is excluded.

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.

A dry red wine, the Crljenak or Tribidrag variety is known and widespread in the world as Zinfandel, and it has only recently been proven that Zinfandel originates from the Croatia, where it is almost completely extinct. The wine is produced from grapes from a single vineyard. It is located on the north side of the island of Brač, in a position suitable for the growth and development of this variety. Harvest is, like all other interventions in the vineyard, done by hand. Brač stone has always been a source of inspiration due to its beauty, but it is also a symbol of hardship when it comes to viticulture and viniculture. And that is where the inspiration for the name STINA comes from. In the Dalmatian dialect, this word means stone, the strongest symbol of the island of Brač.
