Winemaker's note

Mediteran is a suitable neologism explaining both origin and the recipe of this product which is a nicely balanced fortified Teran with addition of honey ("med" in Croatian). The colour is deeper ruby. On the nose we find plenty of ripe dark red fruits, cherries, oriental spices, vanilla, dried fruits, figs, smokiness and touch of honey of course. On the palate it is quite intense, sweeter, low tannin content, with plenty of body, warm, nicely balanced. Not too different from a ruby port.

Combining with food:

Try with chocolate desserts, dried fruits or with sweets based on dried fruits.

Aging potential:

It is best right now, will probably not improve, but will stay enjoyable for at least until 2020.
