Bire Plavac mali
A significant step for the image of Plavac Mali. Bire is one of the winemakers who was among the first to change the volume of the new oak used for plavac, correctly noting that what gives Plavac Mali excess weight is not just its tannins, but the combination of tannins and the influence of the oak barrel. The resulting Plavac is usually ready to drink at least a year or two earlier, but it is also noticeably more elegant. Sweet spices and vanilla are no longer intrusive, so softer tertiary notes, cocoa, tobacco, talc, cedar, etc. can come to the fore.
