Tasting Notes

First shipment to the UK of Kabola Amfora Malvazija Istarska (natural Orange wine)

EKO Organic Wine Certification of Croatian WinesKabola Amfora Malvazija Istarska (aka Malvasia Istriana) 2009 is a natural quality EKO Organic certified white wine (aka Orange wine) from the Momjan Valley, very close to the Slovenian border and a few kilometres from the hill top town of Buje in North West Istria.

This amber-coloured wine is abundant in aromas, from the notes reminiscent of raisins and dried figs to delicate notes of honey and cognac. The wine is rich, long lasting and harmonious. To all lovers of authentic and unadulterated natural wines we recommend Malvazija Amfora, which is at the same time hiding its noble origins and inviting us to taste it and reflect on simple values bestowed upon us by the earth.

Kabola Amfora can be enjoyed on its own as a wine for its pure integrity and changing flavours as it breathes in the glass. A wine for philosophy and conversation!

Recommend to be enjoyed with roast chicken, cooked with 20 bruised cloves of garlic.

Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Kabola Amfora 2009 is a very special white wine (aka Orange wine) made in a the ancient and traditional natural way. The crushed grapes are fermented, using natural yeasts, with their skins (maceration) in large 2,000 litre amphora vessels buried in the ground near the winery. After maceration for 7 months, the wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels (4,000 litre) for several years before bottling and further aging for around 6-12 months. This is the way Romans and Greeks made wine thousands of years ago, recaptured in the 21st century.

Kabola winery is situated in an elevated terraced position on the South West facing side of the Momjan Valley, towards the Adriatic Sea, which can be seen in the distance from the vineyards. This location benefits from dry warm air and therefore there is no need to spray the vines, which supports the maintaining of their EKO Organic certified status of the winery. Kabola was the first vineyard in Istria to achieve EKO Organic certification in 2007. It is also the region in Istria where the red and grey soils touch each other, which gives the wines a special flavour.
