Vislander Plavac Milna Grand Cru

Vislander Plavac Mali Decanter Wine have a Dark ruby color with a purple sheen. It has a complex aroma with the recognizable fruity notes of the Plavac mali with its characteristic black currant and dry plum notes, as well as the herbal notes of Mediterranean plants that make it exceptionally seductive.

Its powerful structure carries tannins with ease and leaves a harmonious taste of warm sand of Vis vineyards and the noble variety of Plavac mali in the mouth. A wine whose true potential we will be achieved in the following years.

 

This strong Plavac will be ideally paired with typical Vis specialties such as Vis bread or bruiet beans, grilled gof, as well as Drniš prosciutto and Pag cheese.

About the Producer
The Italian occupation ended, but the small island in the middle of the Adriatic was surrounded by British destroyers and gunboats, German ships, submarines and magnetic mines. In the air dogfights were raging. That year nobody dared to go fishing. Breakfast was chard, lunch was limpets and sea urchins, dinner was potatoes, but winter came and soon there was nothing to eat. The mainland was far, far away. Islanders lacked food, but since the times of Dionysius they had something else.
On Vis in 397 BC ancient Greeks founded Issa. That was their first colony on the eastern coast of Adriatic. It is believed that, at that time, in the area of Vel polje, they planted the first vineyard in our region. This was how islanders made wine in times of peace and of war, wine that even Agarthid called the best.
Centuries later, Vis residents grandma Franka and great granddad Jure Vojković poured their plavac into a bottle and set out to meet British soldiers, Englishmen, Scots, Welsh, Irish, the boys from the islands far away in the Atlantic, that protected the secret allied Air Force Base on Vis.

They exchanged their plavac with the soldiers, the fruit of the mighty Vis sun and a sandy soil, for food.

They traded plavac for a military meal.Since then, the islanders, Visans and Britons, exchanged wine for food, a dry military meal for Plavac, and in 1944 they won another victory. Victory over hunger and hopelessness.

A great victory on a small island in the middle of the Adriatic.
