Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The Peljesac Plavac Mali 2018, from Croatia, is proof that wine has no borders and delicious wines are made throughout the world. The wine reveals aromas of black currant, berry jam, rose, daisy, leather, molasse and spice. Its light body, agreable tannins and superb fruit quality, make the wine is suitable for food pairing or before dinner. Interesting fact: The Peljesac Peninsula is a wine region on the Adriatic coast of Croatia, between the popular tourist destinations of Split and Dubrovnik. It produces some of Croatia's best-known wines, most notably the weighty Plavac Mali-based reds. Palate: tart cherry, blackberry, dried herbs, black pepper, leather, tomato vine and oak. Enjoy!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
