Putalj

Plavac Mali 2017

The best of this wine I’ve tried in Croatia. Super rich and smooth mouth feel. Luscious berries with a bit of tobacco notes for me. — 22 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 — 8 days ago

Podšpilje

Vis Vugava 2016

Deep, dark golden color. Nose of tart apples. Starts subtle, then a sturdy finish of oak. Attention grabbing. 39kn. EDIT: On second tasting, not nearly as impressive, but still plenty enjoyable, especially for the price tag. — a month ago

Jako vino (Stina)

Stina Tribidrag Crljenak 2016

Excellent wine. Strong wine. But balanced. Yet the flavors haven’t knitted themselves all as one quite yet. Although much like piecing together the story of Zinfandel aka Tribidrag, the different sensations arresting your attention in separate parts has a charm all its own. — a month ago

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Communion wine, originally made by the famous Strossmayer of Djakovo, Croatia.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. — 12 days ago

Clai Bijele Zemlje

Ottocento crni Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Croatian version of a super Tuscan blend. On the mark, luscious garnet color with a delightful full palette. Makes me miss Croatia! — 16 days ago

Hvar Pošip

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 — 16 days ago
