As a leading high quality winery in Istria and Croatia in general, Veralda were very proud to earn first prize for their Malvazija Prestige at the first annual World of Malvasia competition of international Malvasia wines in 2009. This competition, held in Porec, included over 400 Malvasia wines from all over the world. Their success was helped by their grand cru vineyard positions on the beautiful hills of Buje, which have a reputation for their special microclimates with soil characteristics that bring out the best of the indigenous grape varietal Malvasia. This year, this wonderful Prestige Istarska Malvazija, leapt to fame again winning Bronze at the DWWA 2016.
Golden colour with a touch of spritz on the rim. It has aromas of honey and baked apple then nice ripeness on the palate with notes of citrus and passion fruit and a lively zesty finish. Try it with asparagus pasta, creamy chicken or panfried fish. . Istria’s indigenous flagship grape is best served at a temperature of 10- 12°C.
Food Pairing: A versatile wine that complements fish and seafood dishes, but due to its great body, it pairs very well even with red meats. A wine that breaks the rules!
