Misno Vino

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Communion wine, originally made by the famous Strossmayer of Djakovo, Croatia. Still made and sold by the church to this day. Needed to open up a bit, but worth the wait. Lively aroma, blueberries and cotton candy. Perfectly balanced, and a really pleasant finish. Only paid 35 kuna (about $5) at the Cathedral in Djakovo, but would gladly pay much more back home. — 9 days ago

Pošip from my heritage. Rare to see this varietal in my part of the world. A rich, lush joy to share from MW winemaker Jo Ahearne — 13 days ago

Vina Deklić

Rosé Blend 2017

Really loved this. So well balanced and smooth. Not too fruity like some can be and not as dry as some of the Spanish ones can be. — 25 days ago

Misno Vino

Chardonnay 2017

Bright sunshiny color. Sharp, fruity nose. Dry dry dry, with a powerful bite. Tropical fruits and citrus. From the Djakovo cathedral, these guys have been doing it since the 1300s and they know what they’re doing. 45kn — 5 days ago

Plančić

Ager Reserva White Blend 2015

Yummy! Loving the wines aged in French oak here. Doesn’t become too buttery and you can still taste the wine. — 25 days ago
