Ideally drink now to 2026. Best served at 6-8°C

Pale straw in color, tinted with green flecks of fresh cut grass, this Malvasija Istarska transports you to the verdant landscape of the region in both appearance and aroma. Grassy undertones on the nose are accompanied by slight minerality, bright lemony citrus, and crisp green apple. The palate is similarly vibrant and fresh, with zesty citrus, ripening apple and pear, with a fine salty mineral finish. At once full bodied and flavorful, this is a fantastic example of Istrian Malvasia.

Enjoy this versatile wine as an aperitif, pair alongside a charcuterie board of salami and prosciutto, or as an accompaniment to any fresh white fish.

In Croatia’s northernmost wine country, the Istrian Peninsula, the indigenous Malvasia grape has proven to be a highly valued varietal to the region. The family owned Benvenuti Winery has taken this local fruit and elevated it to a stunning example of the fresh, aromatic and fruit forward qualities that are synonymous with excellent Malvasija Istriana.

While most Malvasias improve over a short span in the cellar, this full bodied and pleasantly acidic Istrian example is certainly age worthy for many years to come. Open now for fresh fruit and acidity, or allow it to evolve in your cellar, waiting for the dried apricot and rich honey flavors to develop.
