A busy morning at Bastijana, as the 2012 Plavac Mali went for bottling. We are delighted with the quality of the 2012 vintage, with grapes used from the southern-facing vineyards of Svea Nedjelja and Ivan Dolac, with an alcohol content of 13.7%.
Some notes on the 2012 Plavac:
The specific quality of Plavac Tomic wine is the softness and elegance which we try to obtain from the otherwise arrogant nature of this variety. Typical varietal aromas of earth, plum and dark berries are given a finishing touch by a short aging in oak barrels, which gives the wine discreet notes of wood and spices. New Plavac 2012 is characterized by full-bodied flavour and 13,7% of alcohol, mostly due to grapes from the very best locations - the southern slopes of the island of Hvar (Sveta Nedjelja and Ivan Dolac).
