Saints Hills Black 2015

- +

Dingač, the first place in Croatia recognized, in 1961, as an appellation with “Protected Geographical Origin°. The indigenous variety Plavac Mali has been producing the best wines for centuries. Dingač has its own path, carved into the mountain by the winegrowers, linking the vineyards to the port of Trstenik. From there, the first wines left for Europe. Dingač has always been the authentic heart of Croatian winemaking. It is very steep and specific, and all work in the vineyard is done by hand. Despite very sunny weather these vines manage to keep balanced acidity and develop layered aromas, specific only for this terroir of Dingač. Special for its triple insolation: from the sun, reflection from sea and reflection from quartz in the soil. After being hand-harvested, this grape goes through double sorting: cluster by cluster, and then berry by berry.

This dry wine is full of body and bright ruby red color with purple shades. The smell is dominated by fruit aromas of blueberries, blackberries, and plums, followed by aromas of Mediterranean herbs such as mint, basil and a little oregano. The texture is complex, layered with vanilla and black chocolate flavors, plums, and figs. The end is long, with notes of berries and black pepper. This wine is perfectly matched with grilled red meat and sauces, old sheep cheese and soft and mature cow cheese.
