Roxanich Super Istrian Cuvee 2009
With a lifetime’s love of great wine, particularly the wines of the Rhône Valley, as well as a passion for the terroir of his native Istria, Mladen Rožanić searched for a long time to find the right terrain on which to plant his vines according to the extensive knowledge he had acquired as he traveled and learned from great winegrowers around the world. Subsequently, 26 hectares of vineyards were planted over a four-year period in west Istria near Višnjan, an ideal region for Mladen’s purposes, thanks to its superb climactic and geological conditions. Roxanich produces natural wines from both indigenous and internationally recognized grape varieties all in line with the highest ecological standards, cultivating the grapes using traditional methods with crop control and minimum intervention. In the winery, mechanical and chemical intervention is excluded. 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.
