BOGDANUŠA – A Hvar Island Autochthonous Grape Variety
Translated, the name of this white grape variety means ‘God’s gift’. It is truly special, a rare treat.
Bogdanuša is a grape variety only cultivated on Hvar, so it is without a shadow of doubt an autochthonous product from the sunniest island on the Adriatic. The grape colour varies from greenish-yellow to golden-yellow, and the wine produced from it, which is also called Bogdanuša, has an alcohol content of 12 – 13% and acidity between 5.5 and 6.5 g/l. The vines regularly produce large quantities of grapes in rich bundles.
The Bogdanuša variety does extremely well in the Hvar terroir. The grapes preserve their acidity, giving the wine a pleasant freshness as a result, and they have excellent resistance to dry conditions, by contrast with varieties such as Pošip which do not survive so well in critical conditions.
All in all, Hvar’s Bogdanuša is strongly recommended as a high-quality white wine of choice, especially for summer drinking.
