Purtugizec, chosen from the sunniest position on Plešivica. Spent six months in oak barrels, which is a paradox of a sort since Purtugizec is a wine that is usually drunk as a young, autumn wine. Thus, the name, DarkSide as the dark side of Purtugizec. Its distinctive fruitiness and freshness are deepened with oak tannins that add it a distinctive elegance and sweetness.
