Winemaker's notes:

Santa Lucia White is 100% Malvasia Istriana from a single vineyard Santa Lucia. If our regular Malvasia is our most known wine, then Santa Lucia is the wine where we are determined to show the sheer potential of our beloved Istrian treasure –Malvazija grape - its heights, its beauty. A wine with potential for ageing for at least a decade. In 2016 we have changed the style steering towards a fresher, leaner style It shows bright, pale golden colour. It is quite pronounced on the nose, still youthful with a nicely interlaced scent of ripe and dried apricots, lime, grapefruit. Dry on the palate, medium bodied with moderate levels of acidity, but plenty of freshness. It possesses salty, intense fruit character which ends in a long aftertaste. What we really like about this one is the tension, nervousness which constantly interacts with the palate and keeps your senses perpetually busy.

Combining with food:

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

Aging potential:

Still young. Ageing potential till 2026.
