PLAVAC MALI UNPACKED
Plavac Mali - the powerful "little blue".
Plavac Mali is an ancient variety, and the most widely planted red in Croatia. It thrives in mainland Dalmatia, the Pelješac peninsula, and the islands of Brač, Hvar, Korcula and Vis, where it loves the steep sandy terraces that sweep down to the Adriatic Sea.
It is the renowned offspring of two old Croatian varietals - Tribidrag (the original zinfandel) and Dobričić - and makes powerful reds.
Plavac Mali wines are full bodied, hearty and opulent, with ripe notes of fig, plum and spice, pairing well with game and red meat dishes.
If you enjoy Zinfandel / Primitivo then you should love the "little blue"...
