It was the vision of Bob Benmosché to cultivate vineyards along Croatia’s spectacular Dalmatian Coast where original Crljenak vines were discovered. We are honored to produce wine from a country so rich with history and tradition. On the seaside slopes of the Pelješac Peninsula, in the small village of Viganj, Zinfandel was brought back to its homeland. On our vineyard, three 100+ year old Crljenak vines were discovered growing wild. Benmosché Family Zinfandel is ruby to brick in the glass and the nose is full of dark fruits. A medium bodied red with a smooth, mature tannin structure.
Tasting notes: Fresh deep red color with purple reflections gives the impression of playfulness in the glass. Fruity smell or ripe plum and black currant-scented dark chocolate is well blended into the mint smell of rosemary and thyme.
Serving suggestions: Wine can be severed with wide range of meat meals
Harvest notes: Hot and dry growing season with small difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures.
Fermentation: Manual harvest, distemper, fermented in open vats, manual punch downs, 6 days maceration
Bottling and aging: 14 months in used oak, coarse filtration, 12 months in bottles
