Tasting Notes

Malvazija Istarska (aka Malvasia Istriana) is an indigenous Istrian grape variety. The wine is a pale yellow straw colour tinged with green. The aroma is floral and fruity; the taste crisp, fresh and pleasantly acidic. Ideal for partnering with seafood, and pasta dishes. It can also be enjoyed on its own. A lovely example of Malvazija Istarska from one of Istria’s top wine makers Franc Arman.

"Fabulous, clean, zesty, light bodied dry white with a crisp finish, excellent as an aperitif or also an ideal accompaniment to seafood." John Roberts (Wine Consultant)

"The Franc Arman Malvazija 2013 has all the pleasure fruit notes of a lovely Istrian Malvazija: the distinctive typical fruit signature of the Malvazija grape and the soft lingering finish will reaffirm your fondness for this wine. The nose is lightly fragrant and inviting. A wine to enjoy with friends with a wide range of food or around the kitchen table with 'nibbles' as you finish off cooking the meal.” James B Waddell

Details

Malvazija Istarska (Malvasia Istriana) is an indigenous grape to Istria, Croatia and its region of cultivation. The variety accounts for 80% of total white wine production in Istria. The Malvazija vines grow in ‘rust’ red terra rossa soil over a layer of limestone rock on a slightly elevated plain at 250m above sea level on the south side of the Mirna Valley.
The climate is ideal for producing wines with a full expression of fruit. Hot summers with rain throughout the year keep the landscape verdant even in the height of summer as there are frequent thunder storms There is rarely snow in the winter, which are generally mild to cold as the Adriatic Sea stabilises the climate of coastal regions.
