Grapes from three different vineyards are sourced to produce this elegant, round, fruity and fresh Blaufränkisch. Grapes from marly Plešivica bring complexity, ripeness, spiciness and depth. The second vineyard (Lokvica) provides nice acidity and the youngest vineyard (Doma) brings generosity of red and dark fruits. The nose of this 2018 vintage offers a complex mix of blueberry, blackberry with a hint of typical peppery character. The palate is medium bodied, juicy, fleshy and fruity supported by gentle tannins.
