Winemaker`s notes:

Green with yellow undertones with a crystal shine. The scent exudes matureness and ftuitiness intertwined with a herbal freshness which makes it extremely appealing. The dominant aroma is melon, followed by traces of apples, peaches, acacia blossoms with just a hint of grass and an attractive and highlighted scent of the ocean. The flavour is ideally balanced between elegant freshness of young wine and full, intense classical malvazija elements. Carefully measured acidity gives it a lively freshness, and a bold flavour of malvazija gives it a full body. The taste ends with a soft and expertly dosed bitterness with a note of minerality expressed through a sensation of saltiness and that is what gives it an uniqe, perfect aftertaste. It is an ideal food wine which due to it`s minerality easily compliments a wide range of dishes.

Combining with food:

Risotto with scampi or shrimp, white fish, mussels such as scallops, pasta with meat sauces or seafood, chicken with rice, grilled vegetables, sushi, japan cuisine, istian »fuži« with light sauces, white meat.

Aging potential:

Best from 2013 to 2016.
