Winemakers note:

Malvazija Selekcija is a new wine in our winery, 2017 being only a second edition of it. Stylistically it stands between our classic, bestselling Malvazija and Santa Lucia. In style it is closer to the former, although it comes to the market a year after the classic Malvazija. We can see it as a streamlined, focused and more concentrated edition of classic Malvazija. It displays a nice pale to medium deep golden colour. It has a beautiful floral and peachy nose, which is rather restrained, gentle, but decisively shows the variety. It is dry on the palate, medium bodied with medium acidity levels with nice oily texture and salty even slightly steely impression. Only experienced palate will sense a touch of oak. If it is slightly shy on the nose it is quite intense on the palate filling the mouth with its fine bouquet. This one just demonstrates how ripe and complex a Malvazija Istarska can look like at moderate alcohol levels. Created to please your senses and to be paired with food.

Food matching:

This is a perfect gastronomic wine being able to pair with diverse number of dishes. With its salinity, and clear-cut finish, it is a perfect match with grilled fish, grilled scallops, grilled shrimps, roasted chicken, pasta with truffles...

Ageing potential:

Fully ready to enjoy. Aging potential up to 2025.
