Matela Crljenak Kaštelanski 2013 - Amphora
The family Matela has a long tradition of viticulture and wine-making. Kaštela area (Near Split) is traditionally wine-growing region where dozens of old native varieties are recorded. The most notable is Kaštelanski Crljenak aka Zinfandel. Winery "Matela" strives to produce wines in the traditional manner, with respect to new findings in wine making. Red wines are produced exclusively on their natural yeasts which makes it possible for the wine to preserve its individuality and uniqueness.
An emphasized dry and very extracted wine. The fruit is dark and deep, nearly leathery, in tune with some serious aroma sensations, while the tannins are tiny and build up only after a long time with the bottle. Good acids, somewhat salty like the sea, as a fresh shell and wind on a salty face. Even slightly animal in the nose. This Crljenak is packaged in Amphora and is perfect gift for business partners and friends.
