A relatively light (both its body and its 13% alcohol) and fresh rendition of this often sturdy grape of Croatian origin. Flavour profile of tart black cherry, tree bark, and pepper, with an appetising, mineral-saline backbone. Occasional flashes of richness point to its southern origins.
A food-friendly (pizza, BBQ) varietal red that is, oddly, not unlike a fuller Bourgogne rouge from a good vintage. Huge character at a very reasonable price.
Blake Creedon / Irish Examiner (June 2012) - Best Value Under €20 - 'The lovely faint whiff of tar, the freshness and the backbone suggest one word: barbeque!'

You can collect your order from our Marina Business Park shop (choose 'Pick up - at Marina' on the Checkout page) - allow one working day for us to process your order. We recommend phoning before you make your journey to check that your order is ready, as there may be a slight delay if we need to order it from the bonded warehouse.
If you are not at home to receive your delivery the courier will try to ring you before returning your parcel to the depot; or, provided you have given your express consent to this in advance, may attempt to leave the wine with a neighbour. A signature is required to complete the delivery at all times.
You can cancel an order for up to 7 days after you receive the wine (just call us) but you may be liable for the cost of returning the stock to us, depending on the circumstances.
All goods must be examined at the time of delivery. Claims for breakages (etc) will be entertained only if Bubble Brothers is given notification within two days of delivery.
Faulty (i.e. oxidised, 'corked') wines are a fact of life in wine (though the incidence is much reduced, thankfully). If you detect an issue with a wine we've sent you, call us and we will replace the bottle without quibble.
