Product Description:

Winemaker Ivica Matošević has been described by Steven Spurrier as “Croatia’s best winemaker”, 100% Istrian Malvasia, this wine is a blend of four vineyards (Kastanjari, Vrh, Santa Lucia, Baredine) located on the west coast of Istria, in an area called Buje (in Croatian, Bujstina), just 50 miles away from Venice. They are 100 meters high on a little hill, a few miles away from the shore. Aged in stainless steel vats on fine lees. The 2016 vintage is one of the best. Alluring aromas of camomile, acacia, lime zest, quince, pear, apricot and ripe nectarine. An incredibly crisp acidity beautifully balances a touch of sweetness. A long finish marked by a tremendous minerality. -- Importer
