Tasting Notes: A fresh (hence the name of the wine!), vibrant, youthful example of Plavac Mali that is perfect to just sip on a hot day or to pair with casual fare foods! Light-to-medium in body, with high aromatics made up of a dark, but bright and vivacious, fruit bouquet of black current, dark cherry, a touch of chalkiness, and Dalmatian herbs. The palate gives you those typical chalky and dusty Plavac Mali tannins paired with a ton of fruit and minerality.

Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled. It goes amazingly well with young cheeses, casual fire grilled fare – burgers or Bosnian sausages called cevapi – but it goes extremely well with mussels, stuffed prunes wrapped in Croatian panceta (bacon), pršut (prosciutto) and other cured meats, ribs and any other type of BBQ, smoked pork or salmon, Croatian/Slavonian kulen (smoked pork with red paprika, garlic, and various spices), Dalmatian pašta-fažol or baked beans
