Pošip is an old light-skinned white grape variety native to the Dalmatian Island of Korčula, the Island of Hvar and the Pelješac peninsula in Croatia. It is well known in the country for its rich fruity characteristics, reminiscent of apricots, citrus fruits, almonds and figs together with a slight spiciness. The wines from Pošip have good acidity, they are dry and with high viscosity and alcohol content, making the wine very good companion for seafood. The variety is a natural cross between the local grape varieties Zlatarica Blatska and Bratkovina bijeli. In 1967, Pošip was the first white wine awarded in Croatia with a denomination of origin and the only country that produces Pošip is Croatia.
