AHEARNE POŠIP 2016

AHEARNE POŠIP 2016

73.50

The noble variety of Croatia, indigenous to Hvar’s neighbouring island Korčula.  Juice is hyperoxidized to remove bitter components pre fermentation, and the wine sees no oak.  There is no malolactic fermentation, and as per the rosé, texture and mouthfeel is built through bâtonnage.  The vineyard is picked in three tries, to bring in components of freshness and full ripeness, allowing the full flavour spectrum of Pošip to show between apricots and peaches, through to zesty limes – think Pinot Bianco meets Chardonnay with a dot of Viognier.

Ahearne Vino

Hvar, Croatia

To call the CV of Jo Ahearne MW comprehensive would be an understatement. Hailing from East London, she trained in winemaking in Australia working in a variety of regions, before returning to Europe in 2003. she continued making and blending wine around the glove in a role with Marks and Spencer, and was awarded her Master of Wine in 2008.

Setting her sights eventually on Hvar, Croatia, her focus is now her own wine, born of a passion for rare and unusual varieties, some near extinction. “The grapes do the talking,” she says of her minimal intervention approach. An utterly compelling set of wines across the board, of unique, unmatchable provenance.
