Dark golden color. Aroma is bracing, kind of an overripe honeydew, honeysuckle, and other honey stuff. Flavor is a bit challenging. Strongly bitter and acidity like you’re licking a battery. Not at all what I have come to expect from Pošip. Cool label, though. — 18 hours ago
Grk is really a lovely grape. A shame it only grows in this one village on this one island off the coast of Croatia. Well, a shame for you if you’re not here, but a delight for me!! Really minerally and refreshing. Must be something in the sandy soul here that gives everything that vanilla hint. Paired by the vineyard with salty feta. I’ve been told that there are less than 50,000 bottles of this varietal produced each year. Get some if you can! Only $14 at the winery. Costs more elsewhere. — 20 hours ago
I don’t usually drink desert wines, but if I did, this would be one that I could get behind. The sweetness is not cloying and it’s got some personality to it. Incidentally, the winery pairs it with a homemade chocolate that is beyond any chocolate you’ve ever tasted. Worth the price of the trip to Korčula for that alone! 8.4 for the wine, 10 for the chocolate. — 20 hours ago
So, I tried four of the seven producers of the grk varietal in the world today. This one was the least impressive. HOWEVER, it was still quite nice. Also, the owner’s son was outgoing and friendly and took me on a private tour of the facilities. Wine is a B+. Experience was an A. — 19 hours ago
Family winery producing on Korčula for well over a century. Aged in oak rather than steel, which is rare for Pošip. Complex and moody...a thinking man or woman’s wine. Very good. A member of the winemakers family told me that this vintage should be at its peak in 2020. Stay tuned!! — 21 hours ago
