Vintage 2020 marks the fifth edition of this wine which from the beginning was quite a success among wine professionals and wine lovers. Stylistically it stands between our classic, bestselling Malvazija and Santa Lucia, but it possesses its own style. Malvazija Selekcija 2020 displays medium-intensive golden colour with a nice brilliance. Quite restrained at first on the nose, even closed. However, with time it blooms into a clear bouquet, sporting complex and very ripe fruit character in the direction of peach. Also some pineapple and dash of oriental spices plus touch of vanilla, though aged in inox strictly. Dry on the palate, showing certain lightness, lift, though not lacking alcohol levels. Medium acidity and medium body. Quite fruity. It stays on the palate firmly showing a lovely vibrancy and freshness. Very much like its predecessors, it shows saltines and intensity with a good grip of fresheness.

Generally speaking, Selekcija is a very food and friendly wine where food matching is easy to find. It is no brainer with local seafood, white fish, and risotto. It will also go nicely with poultry and lightly spiced Asian dishes.

Perfectly ready now. Ageing potential till 2028 for sure.
