The most famous native red grape of Croatia is Plavac Mali, from which powerful, deep red, full-bodied wine is made. Plavac Mali grows best in the hot sun on sandy hills. This native red grape grows on the Adriatic coast of Croatia and has two appellations - Postup and Dingač. Although these are the synoniems for the top Plavac mali wines, some of the best Plavac Mali wines also come from the islands of Hvar & Brač.
Powerful red wines are produced from Plavac mali, rich in dark berries and almost always aged in oak. Aromas include baked fruit, leather, cedar and sweet herbs. Depending on the style of the winemaker, Plavac Mali wines are medium to full-bodied, often with a high alcohol content and powerful but rounded tannins. Of course, the best examples are also known for their juicy, long-lasting aftertaste.
The Plavac Mali pairs well with beef, lamb or grilled seafood, but also with foods such as matured cheeses, prosciutto and other charcuterie. ThetasteofCroatia.com offers some of the best Plavac Mali wines from renowned winemakers in southern Dalmatia, from the island of Hvar - Tomić, Zlatan Otok and Stina. Looking for something else? In the offer you will also find other tasty red wines, often from indigenous grapes such as Babić wine.
