Golden Pošip from Korčula
Pošip PZ Nerica 2016. is expressive white wine, reminiscent of refreshing citrus fruits with white flowers explosion in its youthfulness. A balanced touch of almonds on the palate, with a hint of their pleasant and enjoying bitterness, reveals you have a complex white in the glass.

Jakša Krajančić – One of the significant new names on the Dalmatia wine scene
We have been following the work of Jakša and visited his newly equipped winery in Čara, Korčula. PZ Nerica now produces very carefully crafted, pure and expressive white wines from Pošip. Some of the media in Croatia, have already named him as one of the most significant new winemakers in Dalmatia.
Jakša Krajančić makes several styles of Pošip, refreshing inox white, sur-lie version of Pošip harvested from the best positions in the Čara field and the sweet, late harvested Pošip. Pošip Mindel, sur-lie style matured in large oak barrels is mostly bottled in large magnum bottles. Powerful 14% alcohol complements the spicy, creamy and rich structure of Mindel and has been awarded by Bronze Medal.
The PZ Nerica winery has the best view we found on Korčula. Overlooking the Čara fields and vineyards with the sea stretching behind, this is definitely the place you would want to visit while on Korčula.
