Malvazija 2023 (Malvazija Istriana 100%) shows bright, pale lemon colour with golden hues. Youthful on the nose, it is presenting hers varietal character on the first smell. There is a certain freshness indicative for the very vintage, combined with floral, grapey nose, showing direction and focus. Fine aromas of continental fruits, orange blossom, pears, lemons.

It is very dry on the palate with crisp acidities. There is a touch of refined oily texture. Wine is medium bodied, with a nice warmth. At overall it possesses very fine aroma and intensity, the later revealing some additional varietal typicity in the direction of apricots. Already after the first sip, Malvazija 2023 leaves a very long finish, nice, fruity and, as always, salty, almost juicy, which all makes it a fine example of the 2023 vintage Malvazija Istarska.

This is a very food friendly wine. It is no brainer with local, Istrian seafood, white fish, and risotto. It will also go nicely with poultry and lightly spiced Asian dishes or even paella.

Best to drink when young but will easily give pleasure two or three years after its release.
