Jane scored this wine: 93/100
This ripe and luscious Plavac Mali was my favourite wine of the year. It is crafted from hand-picked grapes grown on Croatia's beautiful island of Brac, along the Dalmatian coast. Bright garnet red and fragrant, it is known as the "King of Croatian Reds". Highly aromatic with notes of plum, dark fruit, regional herbs, dark chocolate and vanilla. Bursting with flavour, it opens up beautifully and becomes more fruit-forward mid-palate. Polished, soft tannins, silky smooth mouthfeel and perfect acidity make it exceptionally versatile with food. Lingering plum, herbs and mocha on the lengthy finish. I have so far enjoyed it paired with grilled octopus, scallop carpaccio, roast duck and roast turkey; it was excellent with each of these dishes. It was the ideal accompaniment to our Thanksgiving dinner. I have to say, if I could wring this empty bottle out and extract a few more drops, I would! Highly recommended!
