Rizman Plavac Primus 2012
The wine growing tradition in the Štimac family goes back to the beginning of the 20th century. The first vineyards were planted in 1918 by the great grandfather of the current generation of the Štimac family, Mihovil Mijo Popich, known by his nickname Rizman. The Rizman winery started its production in 2006, skipping an entire generation of the Štimac family. A new vineyard was planted in new locations, in Komarna, Dalmatia. The necessary infrastructure was built and a completely new wine growing region was created in Croatia. The Štimac family is the first investor and ideological initiator of the new wine growing region, which included more than 80 hectares of vine plants in 2012. After planting the vine and constructing the infrastructure, a winery with modern equipment was also built in the vineyard. It bears the name Rizman in memory of the first winemaker in the Štimac family.
As its name suggests, Plavac Mali Primus is the first wine produced by winery Rizman. Primus is produced exclusively from grapes from Rizman vineyards. Vineyards are in the south and southwest slopes from Raba to Komarna with inclinations up to 40%, which go all the way down to the sea. This unique terroir creates the preconditions for obtaining top quality grapes. This Plavac Mali is a robust wine with ruby-red color, low acidity, and fruity aromas, Rizman Primus has a food-friendly charm and “only” 13,9% alcohol.
