Bibich R5 2016
Alen Bibić's mission is to bring Skradin wines to international prominence. By doing so, he plans to sustain the long tradition of indigenous white Debit and red Zinfandel relatives- Babic, Plavina, and Lasin. Bibich winery provides an exceptional experience in pairing wine and food, and as such has been mentioned in prominent and famous American magazine Wine Enthusiast.

R5 is one of the most unique Bibich wines. Very much a cellar cuvee, it also echoes back to a time prior to the advent of stainless steel and refrigeration - building oxidation into the wine rather than having a wine oxidize. The native Debit, Pošip, Maraština dominate the blend, but the exact content and proportions vary. Vinified in new and used American Oak oxidatively for a year, it is typified by aromas of browned butter, hazelnut and Mediterranean herbs. Despite the sherry like aromatics, it’s remarkably bright and integrates seamlessly with the spicy oak.
