Our Notes: The history of the indigenous variety Malvazija Istarska dates back to possibly before the Venetians. Over 30 types are grown around the Mediterranean. Moreno Coronica’s Malvazija is considered a benchmark example of this indigenous version. It represents almost 75% of his entire production. Peppery citrus, sea shells and bright without being overshadowed by acid alone. In lieu of Garrigue, Croatians champion ‘Freškina’ (sent of the sea) — imagine the sun beating down on rocks covered in seaweed.. Think dining seaside in Istria. Pair this wine with grilled prawns, fish pot-au-feu, and anything pickled and briny soaking in oil and fresh herbs.

88 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine: for the 2012: Salt air, lemon pith and lemon blossom lead in this 100% Malvasia Istriana. A wave of citrus and pronounced juicy grapefruit flavors refreshes the mid-palate. The finish is zesty and lively.
