Prisbus is a single vineyard limited quantity wine from our low yield estate vineyards at the Srima peninsula near Šibenik.
Terroir driven wine inspired by our surroundings around the estate, miles of stone drywalls, Christian basilica geminea from 6th century, estuary of River Krka and the Adriatic sea, smells of wild herbs and winds from north to south.

Prisbus Riserva 2013 is a wine with elegant structure and fine tannins coming at 12.1% Alc. With complex notes of black cherry, cassis, graphite, and char with a long finish. Total production of 1442 bottles. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot different between vintages as we strive to work with what nature presents us for that year. Vintage 2013 is more Cab based with 60% versus 40% of Merlot, all vinified separately in stainlees steel fermentation tanks and open vats.

We use longer maceration than usual releases, meaning up to 33 days for Cab and about 25 days for Merlot. Aging in the cellar with total of 14-16 months in new French oak. Vintage 2013 is bottled in April, 2017.

We recommend our Prisbus Riserva for fine dining with game and savory dishes that will play and integrate nicely with the structure, acidity and tannins of Prisbus. Mushroom and truffle pasta is another candidate or try it simply with curred meats with aged cheese especialy local delicacy “mišni sir” cheese from sheepskin. Decant for 60 minutes and serve in large bordeaux glasses at 16 to 18 degrees celsius.
