Merga Victa Pošip


Tasting Notes:  "The Dalmatian Island of Korcula, where this is grown (and the posip variety originates), was once called "The Black Island", thanks to the dense forests that covered it and the deep shadows it created, and gave inspiration for the name of this winery. The 2020 posip is still holding quite a pale colour, though the nose shows some evolution relative to the 2021 tasted at the same time. The nose is briny-salty, like fresh shellfish, pea shoots, green herbs, wild and resinous, also sweet, lemon blossom and lemon zest, juice - such an interesting range. The palate is broad and powerful, a nice mix of the old style, a little riper and heavier, yet also taut and firm-fresh. Length and depth are excellent. The prettiest of this mini vertical '18-'21, and superb value. Tasted May 2022."  (John Szabo, MS - 92 pts, ***** Value)
