Vinarija Dingac Postup Peljesac Penninsula Vinarija Dingar Pljasac Peninsula 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapevines have been adorning the southern slopes of the Peljesac Peninsula on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia since the beginning of mankind. This wine is made from the Plavac Mali grape variety, the king of Croatian red wines, which thrives remarkably well in the sunny Karst soil here. Its name refers to the small blue grapes that the vines produce: in Croatian plavo means blue and plavac refers to what is blue; mali means small. Plavac Mali is know for producing wines that are rich in flavor and high in both alcohol and tannins. Flavors and aromas include blackberries, dark cherries, pepper, and spices.

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
