Hello! This beautiful Croatian wine was consumed with pleasure some time back and has inspired wanderlust to discover more in the picturesque country on the Adriatic coast. 

Plavina 2013 Ivica Pilizota, Croatia.
There does not seem to be much information on the interwebs about Plavina other than on wine-searcher, where they described the wine as follows:
"Plavina is a dark-skinned variety grown exclusively in the Croatian region of Primorska Hrvatska. It has thick-skinned grapes that produce full-bodied wines with an abundance of tannins and dark, brambly fruit flavors. It is often confused with the popular Plavac Mali, but bears no relation to it. However, it has been linked to the white Verdeca grape of Puglia."
