Stina Cuvee White (vintage 2015)
Ever had Croatian wine before? Then chances are you haven’t tried the grapes posip and vuguva either, the main two varieties in this Dalmatian coast blend (alongside ten percent chardonnay). Stina is one of Croatia’s top wineries, and based on the island of Brač.
Young vines on limestone-led soils were aged six months in stainless, and display creamy pear, ripe cantaloupe, lemon and green fig in a moderate 12 percent frame.
A plump, gently honeyed cushion on the palate supports, while frisky acidity lifts. This is a natural with scallops or succulent spot prawns.
