This organic dry white wine from Testament has just been awarded 95 points at the Decanter World Wine Awards. Here's what they say about it:
"Fresh lifted nose of youthful pear and acacia with salted lemons. Refreshing palate with bright cut pear and citrus fruit; impressive length and precision." - Decanter
Made of indigenous grape variety Pošip, grown in the organic vineyard in Jadrtovac near Šibenik. In comparison to Pošip wines from the island of Korčula, Pošip grown here gives fresher, less aromatic wines, yet still full of fruit flavours and with excellent ageing potential.
In this Pošip you will find flavours of stone fruit, pear, chamomile flower and Dalmatian aromatic herbs. The flavour is complex and mineral, with a fresh, delicious ending.
