Vicelić Dingač 2016
Mateo Vicelić has dedicated himself to re-vitalizing this stunning limestone vineyard site that slopes from 1800 feet down to the coast. His great grandfather achieved acclaim for the full-bodied red wine from the native Plavac Mali grape, a relative of Zinfandel, but the war years and subsequent austerity made wine-making for anything other than personal use not viable. Now producing only 10,000 bottles from 3.5ha, but with plans to re-plant some of the additional 6ha in family ownership, there are just two wines produced, the early drinking, medium-bodied and aromatic red Plavac, and the more serious and age worthy Dingač.

A full bodied red wine made from the local Plavac Mali grape, a parent of Zinfandel. Red plum fruit, nuanced spice and oak are underpinned by a firm but ripe tannic structure. Vivid, robust and brimming with black cherry fruit, with a faint suggestion of nutmeg spice on the finish.
