Our Notes: The name, Plovac Ploški, derives from the name of the grape variety, Plavac (Mali), and the word Plaže (the vineyard area), so what it really means is “Plavac from Plaže.” Plavac Mali from this area takes on the Umani like brininess typical to the grape but also embodies the sun-baked herbs and weathered stone soils overlooking the Adriatic. Locals drink it with “Dalmatinska Pašticada,” a beef based stew where the meat is pierced and stuffed with garlic, cloves, carrot and bacon, then salted and marinated in vinegar overnight. Add a bunch of prunes, nutmeg, and Prošek and cook for hours and hours. We also drank it with Ćrni Rizot (cuttlefish ink seafood risotto) and that certainly did the trick as well.

88 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine: From the island of Hvar, this wine has aromas of Chinese tea and cranberry juice. There's also a pleasant feral note in the complex bouquet. It has flavors of cranberry juice and black cherry tart with grippy tannins and a persistent finish.
