Roxanich Tara 6/6
Tara Rožanić is the youngest sister of six. She has a love for all things nature: whether animals and plants, grapes or olives. Since her earliest years, she has never missed the bustle of the wine harvest. Wherever her older sisters are, Tara will not be far behind, carrying and mixing and ‘helping’ however she’s able.
The Roxanich Tara 6/6 was therefore created as an avant-garde, multi-layered and exciting red wine for serious admirers. It’s Mladen Rožanić’s field blend that shows the whole ‘artigianato’ spectrum of elegant winemaking, proving that subtle wines can be produced even under a lot of sun.
The wine is made from the grape varieties Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Lambrusco, Barbera, Borgonja and Malvasia Nera. Some of this grape varieties are unusual for Istria, but Mladen Rožanić mastered the creation of a complex and inviting assemblage.
Our artisanal red field blend made from Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Lambrusco, Larbera, Borgonja and Malvasia Nera, dedicated to Tara Rožanić, the youngest sister of six.
Bottled without filtration after up to nine years of ageing in large wooden vats, giaras and barrels, the Roxanich Tara 6/6 is a gentle wine with a supreme balance of acids, tannins and alcohol.
Like a child playing under a fruit tree, it features a rustic character at the beginning, before the subtle elegance of finely grained tannins develops, creating a taste of unique and joyful experiences of blackcurrant, blueberry and cherries.
The Roxanich Tara 6/6 presents itself with exceptional clarity in the glass: an impressive red color with a brownish rim. The wine glorifies the spontaneity of childhood, leaving nobody indifferent.
