Winemaker`s notes:

Valle is a blend of Malvasia Istriana and Sauvignon Blanc with the former giving body and texture and later giving verticality, freshness and aromatic complexity. The colour is pale golden. The nose is youthful, quite complex, with medium intensity. Floral notes and notes of ripe peaches are seamlessly blended with tropical notes and touch of grassy notes. Clearly, due to the vintage and origin, we are dealing with the riper, warmer face of Sauvignon Blanc, which is more on the fruiter than herbaceous side. In addition, the wine is fruiter and less herbal than in 2014. It is dry on the palate, with lovely freshness, not very often found in our region. Combined with medium body, good flavour intensity and long finish we get a wine that is easy to drink and joy to go for another glass.

Combining with food:

Valle works nicely as an aperitif or wine by glass. It will feel great when accompanied with all kind of salads, vegetables or risotto with asparagus. How about a glass of Valle on its own? A perfect summer wine.

Aging potential:

Valle 2015 is the type of the wine that is best to be consumed young, but it will please our senses well into 2018.
