Bibich Debit 2016

Bibich Debit 2016

North Dalmatia, Croatia

$21.99 / each

Description:

This crisp, green-apple scented wine is made of the Debit grape which is indigenous to North Dalmatia in Croatia. The grape's name harkens back to the time of Napoleon who accepted the wine as a "debit" in exchange for his protection of the Croatian people. Debit is a relative of the Italian variety Trebbiano, yet unlike Trebbiano which is typically very neutral in style, Debit is quite aromatic, showing luscious white peach and nectarine fruit, as well as salty minerality.

This exceptional Cotes du Rhone Blanc is made of 70% Viognier and 30% Grenache Blanc and is surprisingly bright, clean and light-weight in style, which is not typical of Rhone whites, which can oftentimes come across flabby and heavy. Instead, this boutique bottling is floral, nervy and vivacious, showing tangy apricot, bold white peach and gorgeous honeysuckle notes.
