Roxanich Teran Re 2008
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 travelled 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 climactic and geological conditions. Roxanich produces natural wines from both indigenous and internationally recognised 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.

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 flavour; firm but balanced tannins. Magnificent. It is necessary to decant the wine which is best served in Bordeaux stlye glass.
