A cross between ancestral Zinfandel (known locally in Croatian as Crljenak Kaštelanski) and Dobričić grapes - Plavac Mali is the primary red wine grape grown along the Dalmatian coast of Croatia.
The name refers to the small blue grapes that the vines produce: in Croatian plavo means blue; mali means small.
Plavac Mali is known for producing rich, flavorful wines that are high in both alcohol (typically 12% but up to 17%) and grape tannins.
Common flavours and aromas include blackberries, dark cherries, pepper, and spices. Croatian wines from this grape include the reds from Dingač and Postup (both growing regions on the Pelješac peninsula).
