Home / Country / Croatia / Pošip Čara 2012 from Korčula – 87 points

 

Pošip Čara 2012 – “Golden yellow with green hues…Pronounced nose of elderflower, and green and stone fruit…Nectarine, orange peel and hints of almond on the palate.”

Čara is one of the oldest settlements on Korčula, an island in the Adriatic Sea. As a cooperative winery, the ‘Pošip’ Agricultural Cooperative from Čara is something of a rarity in the contemporary Croatian wine scene, despite its long and proud history. Nonetheless, there is a strong realisation that “quality can only be achieved by preserving and respecting the traditional heritage and accepting modern day procedures in grape production.” According to a local wine toast from Čara, “we have been drinking it from time immemorial and that is the only medicine we ever needed”.

Score – 87/100 (non-blind)
