Discover the Wines of Andro Tomic: Caplar

Caplar, the top of the Tomic range, is a unique blend of the very best grapes combining the noble and indigenous Plavac Mali and the robust Cabernet Sauvignon in equal measures. The unusual name, CaPlaR, reflects that blend and quality, for it is short for CabernetPlavacReserva. 

"Plavac Mali grown on the south slopes of Hvar, and Cabernet from our vineyards on the north side of the island, are vinified separately, after which they are blended and aged for six months in barrique barrels. The result is a wine of softer tannins, in which the intensity and varietal aromas of the Plavac are refined by the elegance and freshness of the Cabernet. Characteristic flavours of plums, dried grapes and earth are complemented by aromas of blackcurrant, spices and other undertones. We predict that the wine has the potential for aging greater than that of other Plavac Mali wines. Every bottle proudly carries the signature of the winemaker which stands behind the idea printed on the label: "Produced in collaboration between Hvar, love and knowledge."
