This characterful red is made with the Teran grape variety which is indigenous to Croatia’s Istrian Peninsula and is much-loved by the locals who revere it as a healing elixir. Cattunar’s version displays the variety’s typical deep cherry red hue and seductive ripe plum and wild berry aromas and flavours. The lively acidity, soft tannins and medium body mean this is an ideal wine to serve lightly chilled on a hot day as a refreshing alternative to white or rosé wine.
The easy-going character of this wine makes it a very versatile partner for food. Try serving it alongside prosciutto, salami, or a selection of semi-cured and hard cheeses. Summer barbecues with plenty of smoky sausages and chargrilled Mediterranean vegetables are also an ideal setting for opening up a bottle or two thanks to the subtle tobacco and oaky hints from the ageing in oak barrels.
The Cattunar estate is one of Istria’s largest wineries and is run by Franco Cattunar, his wife Vesna. The family have been involved in winemaking in western Istria for generations and the couple’s children, Nicole and Edi, have recently started learning the ropes so they too can follow in their ancestors’ footsteps when the time comes.
