Updated on:

Today we’ll show you what you can expect if you order the Indigenous Croatian Wine White Case from our partners at The Wine and More.

Similar to the other package, this is a selection of 6 white Croatian wines, 6 varieties and 6 various regions, as the selection was made to represent the best of the Croatian indigenous white wines. The selection includes Krajančić Pošip Intrada 2015, Stina Vugava 2016, Bibich Debit 2015, Jerković Kujunđuša 2015, Toljanić Žlahtina 2015, Zure Grk Bartul 2015.

Pošip wine variety is one of the prides of the island of Korčula, and Luka Krajančić’s Intrada Pošip is probably the most recognizable of all varietal Pošips grown on Korčula. He uses controlled fermentation, using carefully selected yeasts that help maintain the best of the varietal aromas and produce wonderful nuanced wine that should be paired with the best of shrimp or seafood.

Stina Vugava is a wine made by the winery from the island of Brač, but using the grapes grown on the island of Vis, where the variety comes from. This wine is crisp and fresh with an aftertaste of grapefruits and aromas of honey. This Viognier-like wine is does not gain much with prolonged aging, and should be enjoyed while still fresh, as it is an ideal easy-drinking wine.

Debit is a wine variety indigenous to the Northern-Dalmatian region around Skradin and the Krka River, and it can be made into different-style wines. This Bibich’s wine is a perfect “summer” wine, with full and smooth taste, fresh, discrete and fruity, with lovely varietal aromas such as apple and almond.

Kujundžuša is a wine variety indigenous to the Dalmatian hinterland, the region around Imotski, where it’s recently been going through the revival, and many quality wines are being made these days. Jerković winery is one of those, making great varietal Kujundžuša, one of the best on the market, with excellent minerality, freshness and lovely citrus aromas.

Žlahtina made by Toljanić is almost without opposition considered to be the best Žlahtina in Croatia. Žlahtina is a variety indigenous to the northern island of Krk, a very fresh and light wine, with low alcohols and best if had within few years of the harvest.

The last of the wines in the selection is also from the island of Korčula, however it’s a different variety, coming from a different location. It’s a wine made from the Grk variety, grown in the field near Lumbarda, in the Eastern-most tip of the island. Batistić-Zure family winery is one of the few making varietal Grk wine, and their 2015 Grk is quite alcoholic for a white wine (over 13%), but with lovely fruity acids to balance it out.
