Stina Plavac Mali Barrique

$41.87

Stina is a leading winery situated on Croatia’s sunny Dalmatian Coast. Located on the island of Brač, the winery sits not too far from the Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It was created in 2009 by Jako Andabak who leased and revitalized a waterfront cellar in the resort town of Bol. When it came to naming his new winery, Jako looked to the island’s local stina stone, a favorite of local artists and sculptors. Altogether there are 50 hectares of vines planted mostly to distinct Croatian grape varieties. Some of the parcels are planted as high as 420 to 550 meters above sea level, spots where vines have never been seen. On the south side of the island Jako owns the 500 year old Stipančić convent and its accompanying grape vines. The vineyards here are terraced, impressively built into the steep terrain, having been farmed for centuries.

This full bodied, Mediterranean styled red wine is made from Croatia’s most popular red grape variety – Plavac Mali. Widely grown on the Dalmatian Coast, the variety is genetically related to Zinfandel. It is in fact a cross between Crlenjak Kaštelanski (ancestral Zinfandel) and Dobričić (an ancient red wine grape variety from the Dalmatian coast). For this cuvee, the deep and dark black fruit flavours of Plavac Mali have been seasoned by silky oak notes from used French barrique ageing for 8-10 months. Deep ruby red in hue, it displays fruity notes of red plums, black raspberry, and a dusting of clove spice.
