EXCLUSIVE WINE
COLLECTION

Each and every wine that you are going to taste here is as natural as it can be.
That means all of our wines are unfiltered and created without any artificial yeasts, foods to create yeast or enzymes. And all are allowed to ferment naturally, without adding heat or cold to the process.

Crafting wine this natural takes more time and requires only the highest quality grapes– not only picked at the precise time of day to ensure they are not too warm, but carefully packed, stored and handled to avoid any bruising.

DAMA

Lacman Dama Barrique 2022 Crafted from a blend of four white varieties, Bogdanuša, Maraština, Pošip, and Kuč, Lacman Dama Barrique 2022 stands as a testament to Hvar’s viticultural heritage. This wine has matured in non-toasted Slavonian oak barrels for one year, enriching it with complexity and depth. Initially, the grapes were vinified separately and macerated for seven days before the final blending. The wine reveals a deep golden hue, a visual prelude to its matured character. The nose is met with an evolved bouquet, where the ripe citrus zest of lemon and orange combines with the earthy whispers of dry basil and thyme. Subtle notes of nettles and the warm, nutty aroma of almonds are seamlessly integrated, with the oak’s presence providing a refined backdrop.

On the palate, Lacman Dama Barrique 2022 is a full-bodied wine, with its medium acidity ensuring a vibrant backbone. The tannic structure, a legacy of its skin contact, offers a silky, smooth profile, culminating in a very long finish that unveils layers of buttery richness. To fully appreciate the nuanced evolution of this wine, serve it at 12 to 15 degrees Celsius. It pairs exquisitely with Dalmatian cuisine, reflecting its complexity in dishes that are both robust and refined. Opt for dishes such as grilled swordfish with a thyme and lemon infusion, a hearty ratatouille or vegetable stew rich in herbs and olive oil, or a matured hard cheese platter featuring figs and walnuts.

ESENCA

Dry red wine from 100% Plavac Mali grape variety. Pronounced intensity, clean nose. On the nose perceived sweetness, black plums, dark cherries, and dry herbs, very perfumed and inviting. On the palate medium-plus acidity, tart and drying tannins, full-body, bone dry, and long, long finish. Wine of great aging potential.

FRIŠKA

Lacman Friška 2023 This vibrant, fresh white wine from the Lacman Family Winery is crafted from indigenous Dalmatian grape varieties: Maraština, Pošip, and Bogdanuša, the latter being exclusive to Hvar. Although Maraština makes up two-thirds of the blend, it’s the Pošip that lends the wine its distinctive nose. The nose is clean and fresh, of moderate intensity, with notes of citrus fruits, especially grapefruit, mingled with stone fruits, primarily apricot, and a subtle herbal undertone of sage and even rosemary.

These characteristics become more pronounced at room temperature, enhancing the wine’s predominant fresh fruit aroma. On the palate, the wine displays medium acidity, offering refreshment, yet with a medium to full body, and just a hint of alcohol to remind us of the warm vintage of 2023. This wine is complex and oily, elevating it beyond the typical summery aperitif wine. It is reminiscent of some white blends from the Rhône Valley, like those of Viognier and Grenache Blanc, which are delightful when young but reveal their full potential a couple of years down the line.

Avoid serving it super cold to prevent masking its aromatic complexity. It pairs wonderfully with aromatic seafood dishes such as octopus salad, and a savory white brodetto, “brudet na bilo”, as we call it. For meat lovers try it with veal saltimbocca. My ideal pairing would be monkfish tripe.

LACMANUŠA

Lacmanuša, macerated for seven days with its skin on, is a dry white wine made from 100% Bogdanuša, an indigenous Dalmatian grape variety, native to Hvar. Bogdanuša means “given by God” and has been cultivated on the island of Hvar for centuries, if not millennia.  

The wine has a pale amber color due to its maceration. On the nose, a medium pronounced intensity with herbaceous aromas of fennel and hay leading the way, followed by nutty aromas of almond and some citrusy aromas of wild orange cutting through and keeping it fresh.

On the palate, the wine shows medium acidity but is still vibrant enough to enjoy several glasses. The wine has a medium body and slight signs of alcohol. This wine is a bit raw and wild, although thoroughly enjoyable. The finish is of medium length and has that nice tangerine taste to it.

This wine should be served at temperatures between 9 and 12 degrees. Try it with oysters, or some other shellfish, raw or grilled on an open fire, or a simple basil pesto pasta with a good shave of Brač or aged Pag sheep cheese.

MOCA

Rose wine from 75% Plavac mali grapes & 25% Drnekusa . It is made in a saignée method of rosé winemaking that involves “bleeding” off a portion of red wine juice after it’s been in contact with the skins and seeds. Hence the deeper, fuller color, reminiscent of some Southern Rhone roses.

The first nose gives a load of fresh strawberries and raspberries, but also that fresh grape, vinous kick. There is a citrus note as well, more of grapefruit than lemon, and then some herbal notes, reminiscent of tarragon.

On the palate, this is a medium-bodied, but bold rose, with a very firm structure and silky tannins. Acidity is refreshing, but this is not an aperitif wine. This is an invigorating food wine.

Pair it with shellfish stews, grilled poultry or grilled tuna. Serve it slightly chilled, but not under 9 degrees if you want to experience the entire kaleidoscope of aromas that this wine has to offer.

POPOLA

Lacman Popola Amfora 2021 is the most ambitious creation from the Lacman Family Winery, epitomizing the winery’s bold spirit. This exceptional wine blends Maraština grapes from the sun-drenched southern fields of the island with Bogdanuša from the fertile Stari Grad plain, known as Ager. Its journey begins with an extensive 200-day maceration on the skins within 600-liter amphoras, followed by nearly two years of refinement in barrique barrels, making it one of the winery’s most complex endeavors. The wine presents a deep amber color, almost caramel-like, yet it vibrates with an almost sparkly vitality. The nose is pronounced, initially unveiling dry orange and grapefruit rind aromas before the influence of wood introduces creamy and sweet vanilla notes.
 
This wine’s aromatic profile is a dynamic mosaic that evolves with every swirl of the glass, alternating between the resurgence of fruit with clean quince and ripe apple, and the warmth of baking spices, creating an endless olfactory dance. On the palate, Lacman Popola Amfora 2021 is invigorating with its beautiful acidity and full body. The perfect tang from the tannins and the long finish reminiscent of freshness of grapefruit and tartness of quince affirm its complexity. The wine is rich, superbly dry and provides a substantial oily mouthfeel. To fully engage with this wine’s many layers, it is best served at 14 to 16 degrees Celsius in a large Burgundy glass. While it stands magnificently on its own, it also pairs wonderfully with food. Consider it alongside a young lamb roast abundant in thyme, some aromatic aged hard cheese, or even a medium-bodied cigar leaning towards sweet spices, to complement its profound character.

PREDOBRO

Dry red wine from 100% Plavac Mali grape variety. Pronounced intensity, clean nose. Notes of sour cherry, violet, and garigue. Fully body, medium acidity, plentiful and drying tannins. This is an intense, rich, and structured wine, with a long finish and retro-nasal aromas of plums and cherry.

TEŽOK

Težok is a macerated, dry white wine made from 100% Pošip grape variety, the most important Dalmatian white grape variety found mostly on the island of Korčula, but in many other wine-growing regions as well. The wine has been macerated for seven days on the skin.

The wine has a deep golden yellow color with the amber hues from maceration. On the nose pronounced intensity. After all, this is a semi-aromatic grape variety. The first nose is fruity, with stone fruit aromas, peach, and nectarines. On a second nose, the Mediterranean floral-herbal character comes through with the notes of jasmine interacting with the notes of fresh oregano and thyme. Citrusy aromas are deeper in the glass, as the notes of orange marmalade and orange zest appear after several swirls.

On the palate, the wine shows medium acidity, medium to full body, very fine tannins, and no alcohol to be detected. A connoisseur of Pošip could recognize the ever so slight, but typical zesty bitterness on the palate as well. The finish is prolonged and very pleasant.

Serve Lacman Pošip slightly chilled, between 9 and 12 degrees. Enjoy it with seafood, especially with firmer fish like scorpionfish, grilled over an open fire, but also with the white fish stews or even the traditional Dalmatian “Bakalar in bianco”, salted cod with potatoes and copious amounts of olive oil.
