The Wine

Posip is an indigenous Croatian variety developed through spontaneous crossing between two varieties from Korèula. This white wine grape variety has been grown for centuries in Croatia on several islands and along the Dalmatian coast, where the cool winds of the Adriatic Sea maintain the perfect temperatures for white grapes.

Vintage

2016 was an excellent vintage, dry with moderate temperatures which resulted in grapes with beautifully balanced natural acidity and complex aromatics.

Vineyard

Croatia enjoys a long history of winemaking; records show grapes cultivated here centuries before the birth of Christ. Our Posip grapes were grown on the island of Korèula at a small, steep area of vineyards perched above the Adriatic Sea. The just-picked grapes are brought by boat to the winery, just north of the historic walled city, Dubrovnik, in the southern Dalmatian wine region.
