Krajančić Plavac mali Srdela 2016

- +

Korčula, as the home of Pošip, is mostly perceived as the island of whites. However, the old Greeks used to call it Korkyra Melania – meaning “the black island”. Luka Krajančić is, probably, the most known and valued producer of Pošip wines in Croatia, but his Plavac Mali wine, named Srdela (en. Sardine), shows the connection of the island life, sea, and sardines as the essence of man and life. Luka Krajančić is one of the few producers of Plavac Mali wines that uses a method of cold soaking (or cold maceration) the grapes before the fermentation. A different approach that helps the winemaker to extract the flavors and aromas from the grape skin without extracting too much of tannins.
