  • Carob
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Fresh berries
  • Mint

The body is juicy and you really want to keep it on your palate as long as you can. There is a refreshing taste of mint and vague berries, and as it opens aromas of carob and even dark cholcoate are strongly penetrating. The taste is very concentrated with soft texture. At the end, a vave of heat undoubtedly states that this is an exclusive wine. Croatia in a bottle, you can see the Adriatic shimmering in the hot sun when you close your eyes. An excellent example of Plavac Mali!

Winemaker Kiridžija has been present for a long time on the Croatian wine scene. Unfortunately, he is relatively unknown to the broader market due to very small production quantities. His harvest gives about five thousand bottles from the vineyard, with an average age of 25 years. Kiridžija Dingač is a premium, dry, red wine from the well known indigenous Plavac mali variety from the Pelješac penninsula in the southern Croatian coast and its microlocation of Dingač. Aged in Hungarian oak barrels that Vedran is using which set his wines apart from the standard Slavonian or French barrels used by others.

Non-transparent, dark red in color. When you swirl the glass, wine slides down the sides revealing a thick, rich structure and fruity aromas of blueberry, blackcurrant and cherry blended with sweet and mature aromas of jam and prune.

  • Cherry
  • Cranberries
  • Dry plum
  • Spices

It is made from a selection of berries harvested with the limited position of Dinagč vineyards. Dense shimmer ruby color with a smooth oily surface. The initial ripe fruit was replaced by the strong and concentrated smell of cherry, plum, and dried roses. The aromas of burnished wooden barrels became part of the whole, fused over time with a thick fruit extract and spices while the alcohol was hidden in fleshy, resinous aromas. At the palate, it is sweet, soft and supple cherry and cranberry juice. It is extremely soft with the constant presence of alcohol, fruit and a certain amount of sweetener, which is also the reason for the well-masked alcohol. The sweetness turns to serious dustiness and pleasant bitterness in an extra-long finish.

Mato Violić – Matuško is one of the pioneers of private Dingač wines. Being the avant-garde biker from Potomje, he makes very special wines. Dingač is not an ordinary wine, it has become a status symbol based on the tradition of winemaking in Croatian areas. Climate and micro-location were critical to the creation of quality, and grape variety Plavac Mali, which is in Dalmatia called “the blood of the soil”, because of its resistance to drought and ruby red color, gave its best expression precisely in Dingač appellation.
