A truly unique wine - an organic Malvazija Istarska macerated in amforae.

 

Tasting Notes: This wine features a wonderful straw-yellow colour with a golden sheen. It is crystal clear and full-bodied. The bouquet opens with notes of quince compote, followed by dry fern, star anise, vanilla and herbs. This wine is dry, retains a crisp freshness, mild tannins, excellent minerality and full body. This is a wonderfully balanced wine with an intense flavour and a long finish. It is harmonious and flavourful with notes of butter, ripe peach and bitter almond in the aftertaste.

 

Serving Recommendation: 12 - 14 ℃

 

Pairing recommendation:  Very versatile - charcuterie and rillete appetizers, pork and chicken dishes, pasta and gnocchi.

Vinification:  The wine produced in amphorae is the crown of Kabola's work.  Prolonged maceration and fermentation (6 - 7 months) in amphorae without removing the marc and the lees.  Aged for 1 year in large oak barrels and a further 1 year in the bottle.
