Winemaker's notes:

This Malvazija 2018 (Malvasia Istriana) shows a nice pale golden colour. There is lovely, not too intense varietal character reminiscent of ripe peaches, bit of honey, touch of dried herbs and oriental spices. Complex, fine and defined. Dry on the palate with very good acidity levels and quite intense character. 2018 is quite on the riper side, but very far from being to big as medium body confirms. There is even certain lightness and lift in it. The character on the palate is even more complex than the nose suggest. It concludes in the long savoury aftertaste. We are happy to offer you year by year a slightly different character of our much-loved Malvasia Istriana which on the other hand always remains distinctive and complex.

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 2019-2022 but will easily give pleasure for 3-4 more years.
