Winemaker's notes:

It displays deep golden colour with amber hues. On the nose it shows maturity and class. Not pronounced but fine. Quite floral, honeyed, with dried apricots and peaches quite marked as well. There is touch of caramel, yeast and butter well-knitted in the aroma. Dry on the palate, full bodied with moderate acidities and oily texture. As is the case with many fine wines, this Malvazija starts speaking more intensively when in mouth, conquering the palate and lasting very long. While in the mouth we discover a tasty salinity and the whole pack of aromas converges in one single and united sensation that keeps you busy for quite a while. A fine example of a matured Malvazija Istarska.

Food matching:

Fish with creamy sauces, grilled Saint-Jacques, mushroom risotto, pasta with rich sauces and many, many other, mainly warm dishes.
