Grgić Plavac Mali

PriceFrom C$75.95

Tasting Notes: "This is a wine of immense ripeness and concentration from the Peljesac Peninsula, weighing in at 16% alcohol declared, and smelling like a bowl-full of prunes, raisins and chocolate syrup. Indeed, it's aromatically reminiscent of sun-dried pedro ximenez sherries from southern Spain. The palate is not as soft and supple as one might expect, however, showing considerable tannic grip and acid freshness - the energy and intensity of this wine is really remarkable. Length, too, is exceptional, carried along on those alcohol vapors, but not only; there's genuine concentration and depth on offer. The pleasantly bitter finish further pulls the wine back into balance - everything is on a massive scale but with equal measures, including complexity. This is precisely the sort of wine you want on a cold winter's night, with a rich stew or piece of hard cheese, or just contemplation by the fire. Best 2023-2035."  John Szabo, MS (94 pts)
