Price: 50 kunas
How twisted are you if you are overjoyed when buying a de facto table wine for 50 kunas?
Wasted is any sommelier experience, certificates and education if one cannot enjoy something like this. I did, I bloody enjoyed it. Oinked from happiness.
I believe this is one of those wines which “make themselves” in a good year. 2016 was one of the best on Vis Island. Although not the only declared Plavac variety from Biševo Island, this wine is still a so-called unicorn wine. Completely unavailable through any regular or better said expected distribution channels.
Refreshing acids and leathery tannin from the skin of Plavac ripened on the sand of the Biševo wine region. There are no interventions, no vinificators, except maybe a handful of sugar. Stainless steel or barrel) Doesn’t matter. With grapes such as the ones from 2016, there is a balance in the grapes, in an old vineyard. Wine which smells of wine, instead of all sorts of fruits and flowers. But wine in which you feel the soil and minerals!
It seems unserious (although hilariously fun) to read on the back label that this wine stimulates an “erotic urge,” but it’s been too long since I’ve enjoyed a wine this much, especially Plavac.
Messy and homemade, with a direct line to blood vessels and nourishing… bustling with energy!
