“Vino Kaamen II" Croatia Red 2020

$28.95 Sale Save


Vinas Mora crafts wines of astonishing depth from the local Croatian grape Babić. Working with nearly 100 growers in the coastal Primošten area, this wine combines old-vine intensity, organic work in the vineyard (with no help from machines at all), and a gentle hand in the cellar to elevate this internationally obscure grape to star status. Kaamen I is created with an eye towards concentration, and the result is serious, yet far from severe. Dark berry fruit (blackberries, blueberries) mixes with stony minerality for a wine that can compete with Burgundy for elegance. Lots to unpack here, best enjoyed at length, alongside a friend or lover, and perhaps some dishes with duck or lamb.

The Producer

About Vinas Mora

Kreso Petrekovic, the visionary behind Vinas Mora, isn't just a seasoned wine professional; he's also a passionate advocate for preserving Primošten's unique viticultural heritage in Croatia. After success with Podrum Franjo, his initial winery, Kreso embarked on Vinas Mora during the COVID-19 pandemic, drawn to Primošten's terroir and the indigenous Babić grape.

What distinguishes Kreso is his dedication to supporting local farmers like Josipa and Neno Marinov, who maintain traditional winemaking practices. Vinas Mora arose from an almost abandoned local co-op, saved by Kreso, Neno, and Niko Dukan. They revitalized the facilities, preserving a rich winemaking tradition.
