Decanter Silver 91. VITICULTURE:
The grapes for this wine are of the Pošip variety, which is the most famous white autochthonous regional variety, together with a small content (up to 5%) of the Viognier variety. They are sourced from our own organic vineyards in the Komarna wine-growing area. The vineyards are located on south-facing slopes with an incline of up to 30%, at an altitude between 50 and 250 metres. The earth is karst-like and consists of limestone with a small content of soil. The yield of wine per hectare is quite small and amounts to 18 to 27 hectolitres, which results in concentrated fruitiness and freshness. Irrigation is performed only in case of exceptional drought.
WINEMAKING AND AGEING:
Processing and vinification begin with the selection of grapes at our winery after they have been picked by hand. The owners perform this selection personally to make sure that only the best grapes are sent for further processing. The wine undergoes alcoholic fermentation in a tank under controlled conditions. After stabilization and filtering, the wine is filled into bottles in which it is aged for several months before it is released into the market.
Our Pošip is youthful, vibrant, and elegant. On the nose it is gently perfumed including notes of ripe pears and apples as well as wild white flowers and apricots. On the palate it is harmonious, displays good concentration of fruit, wonderful creamy texture, and balancing freshness.
This is an excellent example of Pošip that will be perfect on its own and will be a recommended company for salads, light fish dishes and seafood.
