Bolfan Cuvee Crveni 2019 75cl
Tasting Note: "A full bodied red with bags of character. Expressed in a seductive ruby colour, with dominant notes of spice, herbs and a liveliness from fresh blueberries. Some discrete aromas of dark chocolate and cocao nibs. Tied together with a freshness on the palate that develops to a warm and long finish with a blast of ripe fruit, as a reflection of the maturation in big oak barrels and conditions only this terroir can produce."
Producer: Bolfan Vinski Vrh is situated in the Hrašćina Municipality, on the wine-growing hills of Zlatar, in the Medimurje - Zagorje viticultural sub-region, in Croatia. For thousands of years, this has been a vine growing land, where exuberant wines were created and poured in varying styles, yet still keeping the traditional indigenous grapes throughout time. There are legends and stories, with origins in 2nd-century Roman culture mentioning the vineyard and the Roman military station situated on top of the hill where the winery now stands. The Roman period was followed by a succession of medieval feudal owners, each of them leaving traces of vine growing and wine production. Through their history, experience, ancient soil and bountiful location, Bolfan have reached the peak in wine production in the Croatian wine world. They have achieved a selection of completely natural vintages, by implementing a 100% organic & vegan friendly method of vine growing. Such techniques form fresh wines with outstanding minerality, fruity profiles and floral aromas.
