Piquentum Malvazija 2018 Istria Croatia
Malvasia is the key white grape of the Istrian peninsula and this characterful skin contact wine is naturally fermented without added yeast or enymes. 70% of the wine is aged in wood, the rest in stainless steel. Lots of spice and floral tones on the nose, then gingerbread and dried apricot, tangerine, and beeswax on the palate. A great expression of a grape and a place.
