Barun Marquis 2015
Barundić winery is in Brezarić near Krašić in central Croatia, located near Jastrebarsko, about 50 km southwest of Zagreb. There Josip Barundić slowly began to revive the wine tradition started by his grandparents. Josip was born 37 years ago in France, in Nice, and his parents sent him as a 10-year-old kid to his mother's home country. Josip with his wife Mara and his family began to work more seriously in 2009. He invested in modern technology, knowledge, and had great support and help from enologist Goran Marmilic. Also, Josip brought a French way of thinking and experiencing wine and applied to the local circumstances. Barun wines and sparkling wines are very enjoyable and light, mainly because they contain very little sulfur.
Profound wine with the medium ruby color, with the aromas of sour cherry, strawberry, and cherry, characterized by light tannins and soft acid. Ripening in barrique barrels highlights notes of vanilla and oak, so the wine is rather full-bodied.
