Tasting note:

The colour is pale lemon with nice golden hue. On the nose it is quite opulent, floral notes eminiscent of orange blossom and jasmine are dominant and accompanied by ripe and refreshing grapefruit and lemon notes. Dry on the palate with zest and freshness, tipical Malvazija Istriana notes. Medium bodied with intense flavour character which kind of explodes all around the mouth bringing some extra salty quality. Flavour is persistent, enjoyable and varietal. Finish is pleasant, very long and diminishing slowly, slowly, leaving many agreeable gentle needle like mensations on the tongue for minutes long.

Food pairing:

Risotto with scampi or shrimps, risotto with mushrooms, white fish but also more rich type of fish such as salmon. Shells, pasta with meat or sea-food, chicken with white creams, grilled vegetables, istrian fuži with lighter sauces, white meats...

Aging potential:

Best to drink young, 2021-2023 but will easily give pleasure even a year or two more.
