Have I appreciated enough Tomac’s Sauvignons? Although in domestic terms rarely is there a better one, I have never found much success in these Sauvignons.
Having said that… I believe this wine is the best Croatian Sauvignon I have tried.
Significantly different than the genial Galić suprise form 2008 or the best Bolfan Sauvignons I like to connect with the sharpest grass-fruit south Steiermark tradition. Certainly even more different than the Međimurje masters, specifically Belović who can do woners with this sort or from Kutjevo Sauvignons, primarily Zdjelarević A Capella labels, not to mention certain Danube area favourites with often accented elder aromas.
It must be said, Tomac Sauvignon is still baby young with surface sensations that firstly remind of gummy bears, but is quickly approaching the ideal of weightless, bodyless wine of pure aroma. A real Sauvignon is like a spiderweb, a magical expression I have experienced only in Sancerre by Edmond Vatan „Clos la Neore“.
Tomac’s new Sauvignon has balanced out at 13 %. It melts as snow in the mouth and leaves pure aroma happiness. Indescribable. Nettle, green pepper, gooseberry? Yes. But, still different.
I believe I can recommend this to anyone. To someone who each day suckles Silexe, this must impress. Shame there is so little, but this is a rule with such wines, not an exception. Exceptional is the retail price under one hundred Kuna for such a bottle.
