Another excellent, albeit different take on Posip.  This is a grape I need to explore more.  Golden in color with some copper hues, clear and bright.  The nose has apricots, slight straw, wax and a saline minerality.  It is full bodied and weighty but not cumbersome.  Very rich.  Enough acidity to carry thru but not a driving force on this wine.  The apricots come thru on the palate along with a bit of figs and underlying minerality.  Long finish.  This seems like it should have no problem going ten or more years.  It drinks well on its own but should work better with food.  Pork chops seem

My first time trying Posip and I am a believer!  This is an outstanding young white.  It was about $25 but not easy to track down.  13.5% ABV.  Golden in color with copper hues, clear and bright.  The nose is tight at first but opens to show melons with light citrus.  With air a nice minerality emerges.  The texture and structure on this wine is amazing.  Full bodied.  Viscous but dry.  On the palate, there is a nice backbone of acidity especially with tart lemons on the back end and finish.  Some melon with great minerality.  No bite (in a good way) but plenty of cut and energy.  Very nice
