However, they planted 1500 vines of plavca sivog for which the 2013 was the first vintage. Family Mrgudić does not use large machinery and the terrain gives lower yields with better quality, enabling organic winemaking. Mrgudić family does vinification in a traditional way with the fermentation on its own yeasts, for a period of 7-10 days. The wine matures in oak barriques barrels, of which only 10% are new.
Smoky and slightly burnt with strong notes of rosemary and Mediterranean herbs. Ethereal and appealingly fruity. In the mouth it is densely interlaced, buttery, full, dominant. Although dry and extremely warm, it leaves a soft feel. Tannins are ubiquitous, dense, polished, mature and sweet. They feel just pleasantly rough. Everything is in the right place. Arranged and harmonious. Monolithic wine.
