Alen farms an old vineyard of goblet pruned Grenache in Nadin near the seaside city of Zadar. Heavily inspired by the Rhône, this wine is medium bodied and both savory and fruity. Fermented with native yeast and aged in neutral used French oak for a year, it is evolved even its youth. Dry, mineral and filed with aromas of peppery Mediterranean herbs akin to the French “garrigue” but with that briny Croatian touch. And much like the Rhône, olive trees abound among the vines. Enjoy with spit roast meats dressed with olive oil, garlic and Herbs de Provence.
