Kozlovic Malvazija

750ml

Made from Malvazija (Malvasia) vines grown in the region of Istria in Croatia. The vineyard is south/south west facing and the vines have been planted for 9-54 years. Wine maker's notes: This Malvasia Istriana has a nice pale golden colour. On the nose, it is youthful and subtle, with lovely complexity showing multiple layers. White flowers, peaches and juicy yellow fruits are dominant. In this very good vintage 2015, some extra layers of cloves and cinnamon are adding to the complexity. It is dry on the palate. If the character on the nose is maybe a bit shy, which is what Malvasia usually does; it is fully intense on the palate, where all the flavours from the nose are intensified with some savoury, mineral quality coming into equation. It is quite full bodied, warm, with a long aftertaste. A quintessential Malvasia Istriana. Could be one of our best to date.
