It is always nice to hear from Dusan Jelic of Wines of Balkans, a great friend of Bastijana and Hvar wines in general. Dusan is a regular visitor to Jelsa, having discovered its charms as a family holiday resort a few years ago, and he kindly reviewed the Tomic Veliki Plavac Mali 2011 in his latest blog.
Many thanks, Dusan, and we look forward to seeing you in Jelsa soon.
TOMIĆ Veliki Plavac Mali
Varietal composition: Plavac Mali
Grape sourcing: Island of Hvar
On the nose it is typical representative of Plavac mali with aromas of dried plum and dried fig and black berries. Alcohol is high but well integrated. The wine is very well structured with a huge energy that will be gradually releasing with ageing. Tomić’s Plavac is a great exponent of Plavac Mali showing the great synergy between weather conditions in Dalmatia and this grape variety. It’s no surprise that Plavac Mali makes a perfect match with the Dalmatian wine story.
