Tasting note:

The colour of this Malvazija is pale lemon with nice golden hue. On the nose it is quite opulent, with floral notes reminiscent of orange blossom and jasmine being dominant and accompanied by ripe and refreshing grapefruit and lemon notes. Dry on the palate with zest and freshness. Medium bodied with intense flavour exploding all around the mouth bringing some extra salty quality. Flavour is persistent, enjoyable and truly varietal. Finish is pleasant, very long and diminishing slowly, leaving an agreeable and gentle sensations on the tongue and in entire mouth.
