Varietals: 100% Debit
Appellation: Dalmatia, Croatia
Annual Production: 3,600 bottles
Climate: Mediterranean, with dry and hot summers, and mild winters
Terrain: Inland locations near the beautiful and historic town of �ibenik. A terrain made up of various vineyard locations on slopes or semi-slopes, with an altitude of 50 to 300 meters asl. The vineyards see some of the warmer temperatures in Northern and Central Dalmatia, with interestingly cooler nights and constant breezes. Mostly fertile red and brown topsoil with finer brown clay stones, and a rugged and tough limestone foundation.
Farming: Sustainable and no irrigation; minimal amount of spraying in Spring with only small amounts of copper and sulfur.
Vinification: This is a new wine, made for the first time in 2020. Embracing the minimal intervention approach in the cellar, hand-harvested grapes were destemmed, macerated on the skins for 5 days, then pressed into a stainless steel tank to undergo spontaneous fermentation. Before fermentation was finished, the wine was bottled and left for 5 months on the lees. Roughly disgorged; no sulfur added.
