Discover the Wines of Andro Tomic: Sveti Klement (White)

Although more famous on the island of Korcula, the Pošip grape variety is becoming more popular on Hvar, and there has been a significant improvement in quality in recent years. One of the most popular wines in the Tomic range is the Sveti Klement white, made from 100% Pošip, and the waterfront restaurants of Hvar Town are able to point out the island of Sveti Klement, where the grapes are produced, to their guests.

"Sv. Klement (Pošip) is obtained from grapes grown in the vineyard that we manage together with the Bracanović family on the island of Sv. Klement (St. Clement), one in a chain of islands (Pakleni islands) in the Hvar archipelago. The wine is made using sur-lie technology which gives it a specific blend of toasty and nutty aromas that pair the fresh fruitiness of the Pošip variety. Since vineyards did not exist previously on this location, Sv. Klement does not yet have the appellation of origin or grape variety specified on the labeled, although it certainly deserves it on account of its quality.
