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, the estuary of River Krka and the Adriatic sea, smells of wild herbs and winds from north to south.

Prisbus Riserva 2015 is a wine with elegant structure and fine tannins coming at 13.1% Alc. Earthy with complex notes of dark fruit, black cherry, cassis, herbs, tobacco, leather, and cedar-wood. Medium-plus acidity. Total production of 1693 bottles.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot different between vintages as we strive to work with what nature presents us for that year. That is why vintage 2015 is more Merlot based with 55% versus 45% of Cab, all vinified separately in stainlees steel fermentation tanks and open vats.

Longer maceration than usual vintages, meaning up to 33 days for Cab and aging in the cellar with total of 18 months in new and used French oak is what defines our Prisbus Riserva. Vintage 2015 is bottled in August, 2019 and released during winter 2020.

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.
