Inspired by his travels to wine regions all over the world, Mladen Rožanić decided to create this Bordeaux-style red blend to prove the exceptional winemaking potential of his native Istria. Much like Italy’s Super Tuscans, he chose the name “SuperIstrian” to indicate that this is something a little different to Croatia’s traditional red wines since it is crafted from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Gamay grapes using natural winemaking practices.
Mladen’s vines are farmed both organically and biodynamically, while in the winery he follows a minimal intervention philosophy and relies on wild yeasts to initiate the fermentation process which takes place in large used wooden casks. Mladen then ages the SuperIstrian in these same wooden casks for three years and the wine is bottled and released without filtration.
The result is a bewitching deep ruby red wine which exudes rich aromas of crushed wild berries, plum jam and subtle sweet spices from the oak ageing process. The Cabernet Sauvignon makes its presence felt with hints of blackcurrants, a full body and firm structure, while the Merlot brings softness and the Gamay adds refreshing acidity which provides poise and elegance. This wine is an excellent candidate for extended cellar ageing over the next decade or so.
