2016 Zlatan Otok "Little Blue" Plavac Mali Hvar Croatia

SKU #1378351

Zlatan Plekovic, Croatia's most awarded winemaker, owns 10 hectares of vines on the precipitous slopes (35-40% in some places) of the island of Hvar off the Dalmatian coast. Considered one of the sunniest places in Europe, the island is a perfect mesoclimate for viticulture, as the ancient Greeks discovered over three millennia ago. The 'Little Blue' is made of 100% Plavac Mali, Croatia's most important grape. Often compared structurally to Nebbiolo, it's a fragrant red varietal that can be somewhat tannic in youth, but with age takes on wonderful secondary refinement. This wine is a classic example of one of Europe's most obscure yet beguiling grapes, from some of the most dramatic vineyard sites in the world. Here's some extra information on the Plavac Mali grape: "It's a well-known red wine grape in its homeland of Croatia, providing the basis of many of the nation's most sought-after red wines. It is one of Croatia's most planted varieties, and is known for producing dense and robust reds with black cherry flavors and notes of pepper, smoke and spice. Plavac Mali wines are high in alcohol and tannins, and have excellent aging capabilities, a trait not often seen in Croatian wines."
