Jo Ahearne is a British-born wine maker who moved to the Island of Hvar, Croatia to begin creating her own wines. After studying in Australia and doing stints in various top wine regions of the world, Jo decided to move to Croatia to explore the largely untapped potential of the terroir. Using native grapes and minimal intervention, Jo creates these amazing, high quality wines that are one of a kind.
The Rosina rosé is produced from a rare grape variety called Darnekuša grown in the highest vineyard in Hvar at 500 metres elevation. Darnekuša typically displays spice and pronounced acidity and is well structured, resulting in a more serious style of rosé. The wine spends eight months on the lees, giving texture and structure to the finished wine which is expressive with delicate floral aromas, a mineral backbone and a distinct fresh rhubarb character.
