Stina Pošip Jako Vino 2022
The Stina Pošip Jako Vino is a superb example of Dalmatia’s renowned indigenous white grape variety, Pošip. The beautiful Croatian island of Brač is famous for its white stone, which is known locally as Stina and was the inspiration behind the name of this stunning collection of Jako Vino wines. The grapes were cooled prior to vinification and protected from oxygenation throughout. Two thirds of the grapes were gently pressed; the remaining third was left to macerate on the skins for six hours. 80% of the fermentation took place with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures; 20% took place in wooden vats, imparting subtle oak complexity to the wine. The wine was then aged in stainless steel tanks for six months. Intense citrus, passionfruit and peach flavours are lifted by a refreshing minerality, creating an exotic, elegant style with a textured palate and a persistent finish. Intriguingly packaged with an understated label.
