Dingac Plavac Peljesac Peninsula Croatia 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Dingac Winery is one of the largest in this Peljesac peninsula of Croatia and produces a series of beautiful red wines, all made from the Plavac Mali grape. This wine has been fermented in stainless steel tanks and then matured for one year in the traditional large oak casks before bottling. The Plavac Mali grape translates to 'Little Blue' grape. This grape is usually simply called 'Plavac' and is the cousin of the Californian Zinfandel. The relationship of the two grape varietals can be tasted: both are fairly rustic wines with lots of spicy flavors. Yet, they are also quite different, making the taste of Plavac Mali a very unique experience.

Dingač is a wine region and also a winery on the Pelješac Peninsula on the Dalmatian Coast on the southern tip of Croatia. The red-only wines are produced from Plavac Mali (which translates to “little blue”), genetically the same grape as American Zinfandel, and can only be labeled as Dingač if grown in that specific vineyard area. The vineyard is on a steep hillside of the peninsula, with a dramatic drop off overlooking the Adriatic Sea. The mascot for the winery is the donkey, since for a long time it was impossible for vehicles to drive along the steep hillside. The wines are characterized by lush, dark fruit, rose aromatics and a warm, spicy finish.  Read less
