    Plavac mali, south side Hvar

    Plavac Mali is widely planted in Croatia but the vines growing on the south side of Hvar really shine. The rich plum and raisin flavours are underpinned by dark chocolate and herbal notes much like its parent, Zinfandel. Hand plunged to minimise extraction and aged in French oak barrels with just a little addition of Slavonian oak spiciness. One of only 4,000 bottles made. Minimal filtration and stabilisation treatments were used and a sediment may form in the bottle.
