The biggest surprise – Domačija Ražman Malvazija Antiqua 2015

Domačija Ražman is the biggest surprise of this year's international competition, for Slovenia. Known for their local inn where most of their homemade wine is sold, this year they received the highest score of faboulous 97 Points and the Platinum Award for Malvazija Antiqua 2015. This amber style Malvazija, made with minimal intervention and with longer skin contact, is usually a type of wine that has been rejected at the international wine competition. Maybe the succes of Slovenian Domačija Ražman and Croatian Krauthaker with Kuvlakhe Manzoni, also made in amber style – shows a new trend, going towards natural winemakeing, minimal intervetions and international wine competitions that value those characteristics in wine?
