Benvenuti Malvazija Istarska (Malvasia Istriana) 2016
Malvazija istarska – Malvasia Istriana is now recognised as the leading Istrian grape variety and one of the most important indigenous Croatian varieties. This Malvasia is harmonious and full-bodied. It is exceptionally fresh and mineral, fruity and very drinkable. The terraced vineyards on white soil where the grapes are grown are planted on several positions, all between 250 and 400 metres high
The climate is ideal for producing wines with a full expression of fruit. Hot summers with rain throughout the year keep the landscape verdant even in the height of summer as there are frequent thunder storms There is rarely snow in the winter, which are generally mild to cold as the Adriatic Sea stabilises the climate of coastal regions.
Stunning example from one of Istrias most recognised producers. Crisp apple-ly and slightly herbal aroma.
