100% Pošip from Makarska, Dalmatia, Croatia. Certified Organic, Dry Farmed, low Sulfite.

HISTORY: Pošip is an incredibly old indigenous Croatian varietal that dates back to the 4th century BC (!) that originally comes from the island of Korčula, just south of Hvar Island.

ABOUT: Two Dalmatian mountains, Velebit and Biokova, are known for their incredible steepness and imposing mass and heighto. Zlatan Plenković decided to plant the side of Biokovo Mountain with vines. The terrain of the vineyards is extremely rugged with very little soil, as one might expect. All of the vines facing the south on inclines of 10%-20%, at an altitude ranging from sea level to approximately 350 meters above sea level. The vineyard is composed of a very rocky soil that is mostly Red Clay top soil, with a rugged Limestone base. The climate is Mediterranean, with dry and hot summers, and mild winters.

VINIFICATION: Organic. No irrigation, minimal amount of spraying in Spring and mid-Summer months, with small amounts of powdered sulfites and occasionally copper. Hand-harvested, followed by a couple days of skin maceration and controlled cold fermentation between 16° C - 18° C in stainless steel (inox) tanks. Fermentation is done through high-grade (noncommercial) yeasts from Italy. The wine is aged for 8 months in stainless steel (inox) tanks, coarsely fined and filtered before bottling.

TASTING NOTES: This pošip has a straw-golden color, with denseness and minerality that leaves a thick trail in the glass. It is loaded with bright, full, and distinctive flavors, with aromas of dried Apricots and Figs.

FOOD PAIRING: Serve chilled with hearty and delicious meals such as Lobster, Shrimp, traditional Dalmatian Scampi in brudet sauce, Mussels prepared in a variety of ways, Grilled White Fish, as well as Dalmatian Pršut (prosciutto), Aged Cheeses, and Grilled juicy Pork Chops.
