Intrada 2009

Sorry, sold out
Our Notes: Sorry, Sold Out!

Pošip specialist Luka Krajančić produces the finest examples of this indigenous wine produced on the Island of Korčula. The fruit is sourced from his small parcels of vines throughout the lush but rocky island. Here Pošip assumes a concentration, salinity and complexity unique to the island.

Luka's tightly packed winery is immaculate, as are the wines. The vinification is about exacting precision. Components of the final wine are fermented and aged separately. Some with native yeast, some inoculated, some in barrel, most in stainless steel, some on the lees. These components are then carefully blended to yield a wine intensely aromatic, tropical and at the same time herbal.

Intrada is mouth filling and rich but with a lifting freshness that suits almost any crustacean or seasoned with lemon. The name Intrada means entrance and is the standard Pošip of the Krajančić house.

90 Points Wine & Spirits MagazineKorcula is basically a sun-drenched, 100-square mile chunk of karst off the coast of Croatia. The climate is Mediterranean, and water is scarce, as it drains right through the limestone. Tasting Luca Krajancic's Intrada, it tastes as through its pošip vines must have developed a taste for seawater in self-defense, it is so mouth-wateringly saline, with a sunny, fresh orange marmelade flavor to balance. There is no need to be familiar with the Dalmatian Coast to "get" this wine: it's the sort of wine that immediately brings to mind seaside vacations and seafood in tis flavors and feel.
