FRUITY/AROMATIC WHITES

Fruity/aromatic - MALVAZIJA, Gasper. Slovenia

2017 MALVAZIJA, Gasper. Slovenia

Bin: 136
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Close to the Italian border province of Friuli, Slovenia has a long history of making fine white wine to rival its better-know neighbour. The two countries share the sub-region known as 'Collio'. Vines for this wine come from hillside terraces at 100-200m altitude.
Grape Variety: Malvasia Istriana (native to Slovenia and Croatia); fermented in stainless steel to retain purity of fruit.
Producer: From the website of their agents:
" The Gašper wine estate is a joint venture between a local cooperative and the Čarman family, who have been in the wine and hospitality business for over 50 years. At the helm of the cellar is Darinko Ribolica, a respected oenologist from Goriška Brda. He uses Slovenia’s local varieties, deeply rooted in Germanic, Slavic and Roman cultural influences, to create wines in a modern, fresh style."
Old Bridge Rating: The subtlety and finesse of the finest NE Italian whites - try it!
Press Reviews: "Slovenia’s Best Sommelier of 2015, Gašper Carman has partnered with the local cooperative to deliver this charming Malvasia Istriana. Pure honeysuckle aromas leap out of the glass. The palate is rich, layered and textured. Zesty and punchy with a honeyed finish, this will marry nicely with seafood risotto." Christelle Guibert, Decanter Magazine
