Grape harvest: by hand, early October, when the grapes are at their highest point of noble ripeness Vinification
Winemaking: After destemming and crushing, grapes undergo short cold maceration. The fermentation process takes place at a temperature of 16°C. When the wine reaches the desired alcohol content, fermentation is terminated by cooling and filtration. The wine is left to age, partly in stainless steel vats, and partly in large oak barrels, until bottling.
Aging potential: up to 10 years
Colour: Brilliant, intense gold colour with straw yellow gleams
Aroma: Aromas of rasins, honey, dried apricots and pears, intertwined with acacia flower, Muscat and citrus notes.
Taste: The Prädikat character follows through on the palate and reflects the region's plentiful sun and the nobility of Istrian Malvasia. This delightful semi-sweet wine delivers a wide range of dried fruit flavours, complemented by almond and honey undertones. The lively acidity ties the flavours together and creates harmony.
Food and wine pairing recommendation: Pairs well with fruit desserts, such as apple pie, pear strudel, tarts and angel wings. It makes also a great accompaniment to blue cheese.
Opportunities: Lunch with friends
Serving temperature: 10–12 °C
