ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Tasting Notes: "Made from slightly raisinated grapes and vinified with native yeasts, unfiltered, with no added sulfites, Bura is an extremely elegant, yet 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. Aged for 12 months in premium used Slavonian (Croatia) and new French oak barrels (barrique-sized), it is full-bodied with ample acidity and tannin to support the lush, creamy black fruit including figs and blueberry jam and earthy notes that accompany the palate. This extravagant wine is a natural match for the lamb dishes of its home country, and pairs well, too, with venison, hearty roasts and complex stews."

Distributor notes: "Located on some of the most beautiful vineyard locations in the world, the steep 45 degree Dingac Appellation Southern slopes of Peljesac Peninsula which are known for its big reds, the Bura Dingac 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 Dingac. In Croatia, when it comes to wine and winemaking, really there is Niko Bura and then there are the rest of the winemakers. His Dingac is the pinnacle of Croatian winemaking and is what all winemakers in Croatia strive for and aim to be. 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 one of the longest traditions of winemaking in Dingac, spanning over five generations. Typical bottle production of Bura Dingac is very limited (between 1400 to 2500 bottles, depending upon the vintage) and that is why every bottle opening should be treated as a special occasion."
