The grapes for this wine was picked a bit later than usual. The maceration was done for three days. After that, the fermentation was started in stainless steel barrels. Then, after 30% fermentation, the wine was put into new barrels of French oak, where the wine was aged for 10 months. Distinct aromas of jasmine, ripe green apple, and floral nose. A lovely development of honey, vanilla, and oak on the palate. Beautifully structured.

On the west coast of Istria, grapes are grown on “terra rossa”, red soil. While Santa Lucija is “breathing” the white Istrian soil, the mother of extraordinary wines and above all the unique Buje Malvazija. From this “white” soil comes Franković wine selection. It has always been known that the Malvazija from Buje surroundings is distinguished by exceptional quality. But with Franković distinctive Malvazija, Teran, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, and Cabernet-Sauvignon are also born in the same Santa Lucia locality.

As Ivica Matošević says; “Winemaking is not your 7 to 3 job. It is a challenge you face every single day of the year. It is your working hours and your job description. You contemplate the sky, confer with the sun and the clouds, you discuss with the forecast, chat with the grape wines and flatter the grapes…and you are still in your right mind. Actually, to enjoy it, you have to be a bit wacky.” Central Istrian wine region, Grimalda area, vineyard Brdo. This is a blend of three varieties; Chardonnay, Istrian Malvasia and Sauvignon Blanc, in ratios of 50- 25-25. The grapes are complex due to low yields on very sunny terraces; up to a kilo per vine.
