Babic Pilizota kvalitetno, 2009
From the vineyards on the outskirts of Šibenik, Croatia, comes this babić by winemaker Vinko Piližota. Aged for 12 months in large Slavonian oak, this babić gives us aromas of ripe dark fruit, particularly blackberries, blueberries, plums, and figs.These aromas are accompanied by the typical earthiness and barnyard of the babić grape, which is what gives this wine a certain body weight. The palate is traditional babić – smooth, yet firm, mouthwatering acidity. It is gamey, and its petite tannins allow for a gentle finish. A very friendly and intriguing character invites you to keep on sipping. Enjoy with red meats, wild game, cured meats and cheese.

Benmosche Dingac, 2009
The tannins present in the wines come from the extremely thick skins that Plavac Mali grapes have, and not from the barrel. These juicy tannins and fruit/earth character are what give the wine its structure, cellar aging potential, and uniqueness. Everything is dry-farmed, harvested and cultivated by hand due to the extreme steepness of the vineyards. There is no spraying, native yeasts are used, and the wines are very coarsely filtered, if at all.
Bura Dingac Plavac MalI, 2009
Located on the steep 45 degree Southern slopes of Peljesac Peninsula known for its big reds, Bura vineyards produce the most unique, delicious and prestigious wine to ever come out of the Dalmatian Coast. As much as there is talk about all the different wineries and winemakers in Croatia, no other winemaker stands out more than Niko Bura and his sacred Bura Dingač. Niko Bura’s vineyards are fully organic and are the truest expression of the microclimate and land of Croatia’s southern Dalmatian coast. The Bura family has a one of the longest traditions of winemaking in Dingač, spanning over five generations. Typical bottle production of Bura Dingač is very limited (between 1,400 to 2,500 bottles, depending upon the year) and that is why every bottle opening should be
treated as a special occasion. Made from slightly raisined grapes and vinified in native yeasts, Bura is a masculine wine of high extract and up to 15% alcohol, with intense black fruit on the nose, along with pine and a note of dry hay.

In the slim eastern stretch of Croatia, between Hungary and Bosnia-Herzegovina, is the region of Slavonia and the Valis Aurea, the Golden Valley.

His vineyards include some of the best in the Golden Valley around Kutjevo, where white wine is predominant. German Riesling is a late-ripening grape, and grown well it is capable of producing complex wines that age. Enjingi Rhine Riesling is just that! This late-harvest wine offers concentrated fruit and honey flavors and a silky, almost oily texture, and finishes with a musky earthiness.
Enjingi Venje, 2003
