Reviews and Ratings

Diana Becevello WSET 2, WSET 3 in p rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

This Volarevic Plavac Mali Gold has complex aromas of plum, berries, pepper, dried fruit, and Mediterranean herbs.

The flavours that come through for me are plum, berry, pepper, leather, chocolate, and a smooth smokey vanilla finish. It is well balanced with its smooth tannins, complex body, and soft acidity. My 90% dark chocolate paired perfectly with this wine.

I would recommend decanting this at least one hour before drinking to allow the wine to breathe and bring out all the wine's flavours.

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.
