Croatian Teran wine
Once a popular table wine with excessive acidity that in recent decades increasingly had to make way for the well-known French varieties like Cabernet and Merlot. Fortunately, the leading Istrian winemakers discovered the potential of this indigenous grape variety from Istria and managed to produce excellent wines from the Teran grape. The key was to extend the harvest and aging in barrique barrels, which reduced the acidity but preserved the freshness. This resulted in Teran as we know it today, a beautiful dark red, fresh, fruity wine with fine acidity and soft tannins.
But also... Refosco wine
The red Refošk grapes are grown in an area across Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy. In Istria, the Croatian part of this area, the Refošk is somewhat overshadowed by the Teran. In fact, for a long time, it was even assumed that Refošk was just another name for Teran. There are many similarities between these two varieties, such as the higher acids and soft tannins, the fruity aromas, and the rich ruby color. Yet, despite the many genetic similarities, these two grape varieties are two completely different varieties, and you can taste that.
