Matosevic Alba Antiqua 2018

Situated in the Buje area of the Western Istrian wine region, this vineyard lies close to the Istrian hamlet of Krasica. It is famed for yielding remarkable grapes in modest quantities. This wine, purely crafted from Istrian Malvasia, undergoes several days of skin fermentation. Subsequently, it matures on fine lees in a mix of French oak and acacia barrels for a span of 30 months.

Boasting a unique blend of robust intensity and unexpected freshness, this wine evokes the essence of ancient Mediterranean Malvasias, enriched with tertiary aromas. Alba Antiqua is reserved for only the most outstanding vintages and is best suited for pairing with robust dishes in a gastronomic setting, though it equally stands out as a contemplative wine.

A standout Istrian creation, echoing the timeless Mediterranean winemaking tradition.
