Vislander Plavac Tihobraće 2016

Vislander-Plavac-Tihobrace

Wine for life! How are we different? Our wine tells the original story of the difficult times on the island of Vis and the monetary value of Plavac wine exchanged by the islanders for food. An equal respect for history and terroir is what makes us different. The story of Vislander is a story about islanders – the people of Vis and Britain. While the Second World War was raging in the Adriatic, Vis was hiding a secret British air base. In the isolation the people of Vis lacked food, while the British pined for the pleasures of peacetime. That is why grandma Frona and grandfather Jure made an additional alliance with the British. They traded wine for food, a dry military meal for the Plavac. The perfect sandfield terrain and sustained labor made this alliance victorious.

  • Black currant

Wine with a strong structure and expressed tannins. Dark ruby color with a purple-brown sheen. A recognizable fruity aroma with notes of black currant and dry plum, as well as the herbal notes of Mediterranean plants. Its powerful structure carries its high sugar content and tannins with ease and leaves a harmonious taste of the warm sand of Vis vineyards and the noble variety of Plavac mali, with a slightly smoky note.
