Extremely complex white wine, collector's value. Fermentation takes place in a real Georgian amphoras buried in the ground, with 6 months of maceration followed by another 36 months in the wooden barrels. It is produced by Family Tomac from Pleševica. Small, but premium Croatian wine region of Plešivica lies 30 km southwest of Zagreb, on the gentle slopes of Samobor mountain range.

Orangey color with matchless flavor, rich, intense, very mineral... this wine is unprecedented in the Croatian market and it is a choice for the most demanding palates. The amphora is 50% Chardonnay and 50% old Plešivica varieties, from more than 70 years old vineyard. Spicy aromas such as cloves, nuts, plenty of tannins, intense and long-lasting impression. Magical.
