Pelješac, Dalmatian Coast


Marica Plavac Mali 2018

100% Plavac Mali, Croatia’s most popular red grape variety and also, recently discovered, an offspring of Zindandel, from vineyards on the Pelješac peninsula on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast. Aged for 6 months in French oak barrels (and another 4 years in bottle in this case). Notes of strawberry and smoke. A hint of cherry cola that I’ve noticed in some Zinfandels. I thought it would be a fruit bomb, but after some airing it was totally balanced. Earthy, savory, pleasant to drink — a month ago

Stagnum Plavac Mali 2013

Bigger, bolder, richer, still dry but more flavorful Plavac Mali variety. Better if allowed to breathe for a bit, pairs well with cheese and red meat. — 2 months ago

Rukatac! Trying to decide if we love this wine enough to beat someone up and steal it from them! Maybe? — 3 months ago

Saints Hills

Sv Lucia Vineyard Plavac Mali 2017

Powerful wine that is a perfect pairing for lamb souvlaki. Cranberry, earth, pepper, and tar in the palette, leather in the nose. An excellent example of Plavac Mali, and the best Plavac I have had. — 8 months ago

Rizman Slivno

Pošip 2022

This is a Croatian wine (not a German Riesling - the Delectable app has this listed incorrectly). Nice dry wine, full bodied, nice as both an aperitif and with shellfish and grilled fish. — 2 months ago

Vrhunsko Bijelo Pošip 2021

Flavorful and unique wine. Similar to Friulano with a larger number of flavors and surprisingly complex. Starts out with dried apricot, then molasses, and ends with mild lemon similar to a Sauvignon Blanc. Great Summer wine. Good with mozzarella and tomatoes. — 3 months ago
