Franc Arman Malvazija Istarska (Malvasia Istriana) 2016
Malvazija Istarska (Malvasia Istriana) is an indigenous grape to Istria, Croatia and its region of cultivation. The variety accounts for 80% of total white wine production in Istria. The Malvazija vines grow in ‘rust’ red terra rossa soil over a layer of limestone rock on a slightly elevated plain at 250m above sea level on the south side of the Mirna Valley.
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.
