Winemakers note:

Sold out - new vintage comes out in December 2019. Malvazija Selekcija 2016 (Malvasia Istriana 100%) is a new wine in our range. Regarding the style it stands between our classic, bestselling Malvazija and Santa Lucia. 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 Malvazia. Selekcija 2016 displays a nice medium deep golden colour. On the nose it is youthful and rather shy for a typical Malvasia Istriana variety as we know it. It is bit restrained, more silent, but beautifully crafted, fine, pure and focused. Touch of ripe peaches and a blend of ripe tropical fruits combined with freshness are the fil rouge of this Malvasia. It is all about the finesse. On the palate it is dry, medium to full bodied with incredible levels of balanced acidity and vast concentration and intensity on the palate. Its interaction with the tongue is almost painful, but very pleasant. It is savoury, with a feeling of salinity with plenty of freshness and long aftertaste. We think our Malvazija Gold representing a very distinctive style of unoaked Malvasia Istriana marked with purity and concentration.

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:

It is best to drink it through 2018-2025.
