Wine Region: Croatia
Ambra is produced from dried grapes of the indigenous varieties Debit and Maraština, mixed from seven different vintiges. The wine is aged several years in oak barrels. Heavy and smooth in texture it has a sweet and strong taste with flavors of dried fig, carob, vanilla and raisins with notes of burnt toffee, caramel, spicy Tobacco and a distinctive Rancio twist. It's not necessarily a dessert wine, but rather for anything pungent in flavor.
About the Winery
Alen Bibich's mission is to bring the wines of Skradin to international prominence. By doing so, he hopes to sustain the long tradition of the indigenous white Debit and red Zinfandel relatives Babic, Plavina and Lasin unique to his home. Alen also has a taste for Grenache and Shiraz, of which he makes surprisingly Rhone-ish examples. Despite the quality of his wines and the acclaim they have received, Alen believes that the surface is just being scratched.
