The Sorelle range is dedicated to Mladen Rožanić’s six daughters.
Serious yet thoughtfully aged, the Sorelle range continues Mladen’s tradition of macerated and spontaneously fermented wines, reflecting the sun, land, breath and soul of Istria in white and red.
Sometimes affectionately referred to as our - whites dressed in red - these wines are vinified the same way as our classical reds, retaining the original fruitiness of the grape but with a heartier - and surprisingly tannic - kick to the palate, as a result of long contact with the skins and seeds of the grapes.
Through this unusual method, the wine retains the original fruitiness of the grape, but pleasantly surprises the palate with the hearty richness of secondary aromas, as result of long contact with original tannins hidden in the skin and the pips of the grapes.
Deep amber in color, dry and full-bodied and irresistibly fresh, however you dress these wines - what’s underneath will surprise you.
The Sorelle wines are carefully aged in large wooden barrels and watts as well as in giaras - or in combination of all three.
Only when bottling is modern viticulture technology employed: The wines are put into bottles under natural cork and protected from oxidation with inert gas, so that they can continue to mature in the bottle with minimal sulphurisation. In a similar way, most of the wines in Istria were produced 200 years ago.
The Sorelle range is the contemporary counterpoint to the classic Roxanich range: wines that embrace modern technique and expertise, with maceration times that vary from vintage to vintage before careful ageing in large wooden casks.
This old-meets-new production process creates amber- colored elixirs that smell of acacia flowers, almond milk, garrigue herbs, nuts, sea salt and hints of iodine.
Experience our amazing selection of rare Roxanich long aged natural wines, without pesticides, chemicals and additives.

If our wine has travelled by post or in the trunk of your car, please allow it a week to settle at its new premises before opening. Please keep it always out of sunlight and at a temperature of under 15 degrees Celsius. It’s strictly natural wine, so it develops best with a lot of fresh air at consumption. Therefor please open - and decant if possible - the red wines several hours before consumption - best at noon if you plan to drink them for dinner - and the white wines at least two hours before consumption. Please place special attention to wine glasses: our natural wines are best experienced in as wide and open glasses as possible, allowing them to develop they stunning array of scents and aromas to their full potential.
Thanking you for such a treatment, Roxanich wines will return this care generously with stunning new levels of enjoyment.
