Wow ... this takes me straight to the Med with a plate of shellfish and warm sunshine. Citrus, peach and mango with stunning, creamy texture. Long, refreshing and super-satisfying.
Pošip 70%, Vugava 20%, Chardonnay 10%
The beautiful Croatian island of Brač is famous for its white stone, known locally as Stina, and was the inspiration behind the name of this stunning Jako Vino wine. The Stina project was founded in 2009 when Jako Andabak invested in a cellar along the waterfront in Bol. After much renovation, he designed a contemporary cellar perfect for production and tastings. Simultaneous investment was made in the vineyards, which are planted with local varieties such as Pošip and Vugava. Although grape vines have been cultivated on the island for centuries (the vineyard at Stipančić dates back to the 15th century) most needed either replanting or restoring to return them to their former glory. Winemaker Rikard Petric showcases these glorious indigenous varieties in a collection of fruit focused wines full of Croatian charm.
