BIW Merga Victa Rose 2021

Merga-Victa-Rose
- +
11.99 €91,54 HRK

In the center of the island of Korčula, the freshwater ponds that feed the vineyards of the village of Smokvica are a remarkable gift of nature. Local people call this place “Merga Victa,” meaning “path for water” in old Dalmatian dialect. Vineyards are located on the outskirts of Smokvica, the birthplace of Pošip. Local people have planted indigenous grape varieties on terraced fields carved out of rocky hillsides, fed by the water from the streams. Today’s winemakers do most of their work by hand, just like their ancestors.

Wine notes

Variety Plavac mali
Category Rose
Bottle size 0.75 L
Alcohol 13 %
  • Rose
  • Raspberry
  • Tea
  • Wild strawberries

A rose’ made from Plavac Mali on Korčula island. Roses, and rose hip in particular, clearly announce their presence on the nose, while raspberries and wild strawberries dominate the palate. The visuals are stunning, too: there’s an unreal, almost fluorescent raspberry color. Despite all its head-on intensity, it doesn’t feel artificial at all. The mouthfeel is all about ripe fruit, not about residual sugar. The wine is well balanced with a refreshing acidity. Infectious. Crunchy.

  • Fruit cake
  • Shrimps
  • Starters
  • Cured meat
