2016 Volarević Plavac Mali Syrtis Gold EditionDalmatian Coast, Croatia
Plavac Mali Syrtis Gold Edition's fragrance is complex and yields typical varietal aromas in a combination of fresh berries and dry, small, dried fruit, as well as aromas of Mediterranean plants. Specifically note raisination, due to the harvest date picked for a time when some of the berries have already become raisins on the vine. Aged in oak barrels for 24-36 months, and the rest in the bottle, this is a powerful, very big, red wine. The mild acids and the fullness of the wine provide an excellent balance of strength and durability.
