Plavina is without a doubt Croatia’s most overlooked and underrated coastal red grape! Oftentimes in the shadows of better-known varietals Plavac Mali and Babić, Plavina certainly has its own place and offers completely different characteristics from other Croatian coastal reds. It's light, bright, and lively, so much so that one would never guess that it comes from a warmer climate on the rocky soils located right in front of the pristine Adriatic Sea! Hand-picked, and coarsely filtered, Piližota’s Plavina has really expressed its authentic Dalmatian characteristics: lively acidity, fresh red berries and fruit, lower alcohol that isn’t overpowering, a solid tannin structure, with a hint of chocolate and constant undertones of Dalmatian earthiness. Great with apps but also pairs perfectly with simple poultry of heartier fish like tuna and swordfish.
