Stina Plavac Mali Majstor

The translation of “Plavac Mali Majstor” is “little blue master”. This wine is made from the little blue grape known as Plavac Mali. The small grape with big flavours.

Stina Plavac Mali Majstor is made from this small blue grape that has full-bodied flavours. This wine is a bold red colour with notes of blackberry, figs, and spice. It is a full-bodied wine with flavours of berries, cherries, dried figs, and spices.

To get the full flavours from this wine, decant for up to 1 hour prior to serving. The recommended serving temperature is 18 °C.

This full-bodied Plavac Mali only seemed appropriate to serve in this beautiful Riedel Winewings Cabernet Sauvignon glass that is perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines.

The glass is Flat-bottomed and reminiscent of an aircraft with an increased surface area that exposes the wine to oxygen allowing the aromas to fully develop. I never thought a wine glass can make a difference in how your wine smells and tastes. It absolutely does, try it out for yourself.

The wine is exclusively available in Ontario at Croatia Unpacked.
