Rizman Pošip 2016
The wine growing tradition in the Štimac family goes back to the beginning of the 20th century. The first vineyards were planted in 1918 by the great grandfather of the current generation of the Štimac family, Mihovil Mijo Popich, known by his nickname Rizman. The Rizman winery started its production in 2006, skipping an entire generation of the Štimac family. A new vineyard was planted in new locations, in Komarna, Dalmatia. The necessary infrastructure was built and a completely new wine growing region was created in Croatia. The Štimac family is the first investor and ideological initiator of the new wine growing region, which included more than 80 hectares of vine plants in 2012. After planting the vine and constructing the infrastructure, a winery with modern equipment was also built in the vineyard. It bears the name Rizman in memory of the first winemaker in the Štimac family.
This wine is made from the indigenous Dalmatian variety, white Pošip. From vineyards on steep southern slopes and hills in Komarna descending into the sea. Pošip is for many wine connoisseurs Croatian most potent white variety. With organic grape production, contemporary processing and modern way of wine making Rizman winery tries to take the best out of Pošip and secure it a reputation that deserves. Fresh, aromatic and fruity, served at an ideal temperature of 10-12 °C.
