Winemaker's notes:

Our Malvazija (Malvasia Istriana) exhibits nice pale lemon, almost golden colour. Nose is of medium intensity with ripe yellow fruit sensations such as peach, apricot and lemon coming first, followed by bit of fresh herbs like sage. Classic Malvasia scent. On the palate it is dry, medium bodied, with slightly oily texture while offers lovely, balanced acidity touch of saltiness and slightly altered aroma profile with more floral sensations. Certainly, not as rich as in 2015 or easy as in 2014, but pure, focused with nice length. This one will certainly last few years. Drink from 2017-2020.

Combining with food:

Risotto with scampi or shrimps, mashroom risotto, delicate white fish but alo more complex textures like salmon. Good comapanion to scallops, pasta dishes with meat or seafood, chicken in creamy sauces, grilled vegetables, istrian fuži wtih lighter sauces and with poultry in general.

Aging potential:

From 2017 to 2020.
