Best Croatian Posip I’ve had, and more complex than most.

Just, just... just wonderful.
Initially, I get quince and a slight licorice that isn’t overpowering. Peach, of course.
The intangible here is just the well rounded character of the whole thing. It’s hard to nail down, but it’s got this savory, sweet, umami, bitter, acid quality to it that just brings a sip to the very edge of paradise as a flavor, a taste, an experience.
I’m glad I went for the gold here. I love drinking the canned sake and the 300 mL bottles when I’m going solo, so I upped the ante a bit and went for the mid-tier higher selection and it paid off. — 3 years ago
Delicious. Orange. Cloudy. Nose Apricot. White flower & rose. Smooth finish. Not tart or sour. — 3 years ago
Recommended by Union Square Wines, which is a nice looking shop, but definitely a bit overpriced and the traditional type of wine shop where their natural wine section is 4 bottles big and they love their tradition and pretension. Not opposed to it, just think it’s a blue ocean, why not be open to all possibilities of what something can be?
Long as it tastes good...
In any case, this was recommended to me as the traditional example of Chenin Blanc so decided to up the ante a bit and go for it.
Straw color. Champagne mangoes, slight thyme, orange blossom, and subtle jasmine.
Well-balanced. Simple in its structure, but being a writer I know when something seems simple, it takes a great amount of precision to achieve that nonchalant exceptionalism. Graceful, may be a better word.
Brioche, honeyed pecans, and a bit of tropical fruit and stone fruit. Light to medium acidity. It’s pleasant. Like laying in a hammock on a Monday night. — 3 years ago
