Our Notes: Only 5 bottles left! All of the Toreta wines are fruitful without being overly primary and are intensely mineral and textural. This premium Pošip is the best example of this balance. Pošip can often produce a lot of sugars on the vine and result in some of the biggest and fullest bodied whites in Dalmatia. When it is grown and handled correctly however like this 2015, it can keep these powerful lush flavors but remain incredibly light on its feet. Pungent and unique it is the perfect refreshment for the sun drenched beaches of Korčula. Naturally appropriate for sea-fare and or pork smothered in Mediterranean herbs. One regional favorite is ravioli stuffed with local goat cheese.

90 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine for the 2015: Working on the wind-whipped island of Korkula in the Adriatic, Frano Banicevic produced a 2015 that shows the power that posip can deliver. It's not just the juiciness of the peach and pear flavors, but also the sense of the island it channels in its intense salinity and resinous herba scents. This has the heft for a pork loin, and the stuffing to last well in the cellar.
