Vinarija Dingač Dingač 2013
Founded in 1937 by 550 winegrowing households contributing as one collective, since the privatization which followed the end of Yugoslav Communism in the early 90’s the number has dropped to 300, but their challenges and successes are still shared. Today Vinarija Dingač produce 4 Plavac based wines the lighter “Plavac” and “Peljesac”, both sourced mostly from the cooler Župa Valley, small amounts of “Postup”, a special site classified in 67’, and the flagship “Dingač, Dingač”, to indicate both the winery and appellation. Dingač is the most well-known vineyard in Croatia. The soil and geographical position make unique wines. This is traditional wine from the famed Dingač vineyard on the steep coast in Southern Dalmatia.
No oak was used, only the best Plavac Mali fruit fermented and matured in large barrels. A traditional expression of this famous bold structured wine. Dingač has a clean, precise and fine real hit bouquet. At the same time the mineral, spicy and extremely fruity with a strong spicy addition. Plum jam in almost the trademark of Plavac Mali but there are also plenty of berries. Red and black currant in particular. Cloves, cinnamon, sweet spices, cedar, carob. Juicy, ripe and fine polished tannins combined with unusually high and very pleasant freshness, and ripe fruitiness, make it soft, gentle and pleasantly rough.
