2010 Posip, Grgic Vina
The Wine: Posip is an indigenous Croatian variety developed through spontaneous crossing between two varieties from Korcula. 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. This crisp, dry wine offers a trip to the Mediterranean in a glass with citrus, almonds, ripe melon and savory herbs. Match its refreshing acidity and avors with fresh seafood and light cheeses.
Vintage: The Dingac appellation has an arid, Mediterranean climate, but the 2010 growing season was unusually rainy. Luckily, September and October turned dry and the vineyard’s well-drained mix of rocky and clay soils allowed excess water to evaporate immediately. Only the best-looking grapes were picked to create an impressive wine.
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 Korcula 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.
