Heritage – New Iconic Dalmatian Wine
Korčula's Heritage meets all the requirements to be categorized as an iconic wine. It is, however, quite rare and available for tasting in only a few Dalmatian restaurants. A well-known Korčulan wine-maker Igor Radovanović started it as a project in 2017, along with sommelier Siniša Lasan. They have created this grk and pošip (authentic Croatian wine sorts) cuvee grown in 50-year-old vineyards in Smokvica on Korčula. Although they are present in equal proportions, the dominant taste seems to be that of grk (eng. Greek) with strong aroma of ripe yellow fruits and herbs while pošip gives it a fresh lightness. Heritage has become one of the most impressive and original white Dalmatian wines, along with winery Križ’s Grk and Miloš’s Rukatac.
