MASTER CLASS: MARIO MEŠTROVIĆ: Tehnologija – znanje – svježina u dalmatinskim bijelim vinima

Nakon degustacije bijelih vina Udruge  Hvarski vinari, ponajviše sorte Bogdanuša, ostaju vrlo lijepe impresije. Vinari su svojim tehničkim znanjem o vinifikaciji, primjenom modernije tehnologije i svojim predanim radom iznijeli stilistiku vina koju dugo i željno isčekujemo. Vina berbe 2017. pokazala su prpošnost i svježinu u izričaju, delikatne, čiste arome i sjajnu ravnotežu u okusu, idealno vino za ljetno osvježenje na osunčanom otoku Hvaru.

  Bogdanuša kao sorta pokazuje se sjajnom u hvarskom terroiru zadržavanjem vinske kiseline u grožđu koja kasnije rezultira svježinom u vinu i odličnom otpornošću na suše pri kojima sorta poput pošipa ne uspijeva opstati u tim kritičnim uvjetima.
Velik korak unaprijed koji smo imali priliku iskusiti je prikaz koji smo doživjeli u dva vina, koji dokazuje i staru predaju zrelih vinara na otoku, a to je da je Bogdanuša sposobna iznijeti “Velika vina” s dugim životnim vijekom u kojem se razvijaju, koja su moćnog tijela, trajnog okusa i ostavljaju duboke impresije.
Drugim riječima vina Hvara su suvremena!

MASTER CLASS – MARIO MEŠTROVIĆ – Technology- Knowledge- Freshness in Dalmatian white wines

After tasting the Hvar (Festival Hvar Otok Vina-  11.05.2018. Hvar – Hotel Amfora) white wines from wineries, members of the Hvar Winemakers Association, primarily Bogdanusa, we were left with superb impressions.The winemakers skills and knowledge, use of more and more modern technology, and above all their hard work, resulted in wine styles that we have been long waiting and hoping for.

Wines from the 2017 harvest have shown us liveliness and freshness of expression, delicate, clean aromas, and great balance in the taste.

Bogdanusa as a sort is the ideal wine for summer refreshment on the sunny island of Hvar, perfectly suited for the terroir, protecting the wine acids in the grapes, which gives both resistance to draught and also freshness in the resulting wine. Even a variety like posip has difficulty surviving in these critical conditions.

We had the opportunity to experience a further, large step forward with two of the wines, which proved the stories from winemakers of old, that the Bogdanusa grape is capable of creating “great wines”. Wines with mighty bodies and a long life, during which they keep developing. Wines of long lasting tastes leaving strong, deep impressions.

In other words, Hvar wines are as contemporary as they come.

The wines produced of the varieties bogdanuša, prč, mekuja and darnekuša were tasted and commented by Siniša Koceić and Alen Gulan, wine experts.  Wine tour guides, restaurant owners and others who work in wine tourism and gastronomy sectors were present and have learned more about these Hvar varieties, some of which are produced in very small quantities.

Mekuja variety can be found in different white blends of the Hvar Island wines, but only 100%

Mekuja Huljić

Mekuja HuljićMekuja is produced by OPG Teo Huljić. This white variety is grown in small quantities, and traditionaly on the borders of the vineyards planted with other varieties.

A red indigenous variety of Hvar Island, Darnekuša inspired  Jo Ahearne, one of the leading wine experts in the world, to make her first Hvar wine, Rosina.

This red Hvar variety grows on the higher parts of the island near the peak of St. Nikola and gives lighter wines such as Duboković Laganini.

Bilo je divno vidjeti stare prijatelje i upoznati nove,

slušati izvornu dalmatinsku glazbu

il zapjevati zajedno s klapom Veli Kamik.

Bilo je zanimljivo otkriti priče iz srednjovjekovne povijesti našega otoka.
