Vina Kozlović Teran 2016, Istria, Croatia

Producer note

The Kozlović family have been making wine in the Istrian region of Croatia since 1904.  The region borders Friuli and the wines, food and people have a real connection with their Italian neighbours. The winery is run by Gianfranco and Antonella Kozlović and they currently cultivate 25 hectares of vineyard. Gianfranco is a perfectionist and he is constantly striving to improve his wine. He takes a modern approach to winemaking and produces seriously good wines.

Vineyard note

The vineyard is located in Santa Lucia in Western Istria at altitudes of between 200 to 240 metres above sea level. The age of the vines varies from nine to 54 years, but all are planted with a south to southwesterly orientation to maximise their exposure to the sun. The soils are made up of flysch, limestone and clay.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested by hand, carefully sorted and then underwent a five day maceration. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. The wine was then matured in wooden barrels of 30hl for eight months, prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

A fresh and medium bodied red wine with a combination of black fruits and bitter chocolate, reminiscent of Refosco from Northern Italy. Fresh notes of raspberry and bramble fruit with graphite hints, herbaceous and vibrant.

Serving Suggestion

Teran is ideally served with lasagne, pasta with meatballs and a tomato based sauce, or grilled pork, lamb and game.
