Winemaker's notes:

Sold out - new vintage comes out in December 2019. Malvazija 2017 (Malvasia Istriana 100%) shows a nice medium deep golden colour. On the nose it is open, diverse very pure and of medium intensity. There is a nice play between freshness and opulence. We can encounter lemons and apples combining with apricots, peaches, pineapples... A bit like in 2015 there is some delicate spiciness. And yes, there is sage again. On the palate it is dry, medium bodied with remarkable and balanced acidity. There is a good intensity of the character which cover the mouth nicely and finishes in a long, slightly salty and spicy aftertaste.

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:

It is best to drink it through 2018-2020 but will easily give pleasure for 2-3 more years.
