Giorgio Clai is the most passionate winemaker on the Istrian peninsula. His wines can be found in the top New York and San Francisco restaurants. “I am making wine in the vineyard, not in the winery!” he will proudly tell you. Clai is the first winery in Istria that reached the status of cult winery. He follows the principles of biodynamic viticulture. His wines are made from organic grapes without the addition of selected yeasts and with minimum amount of sulphur. Wines from white grape varieties are produced in a traditional manner, leaving the skins in contact with the must during the fermentation.

Wine notes

WINERY Clai
Region Istria & Kvarner
variety Malvasia Istriana, Sauvignon blanc, Pinot gris
CATEGORY White
BOTTLE SIZE 0.75l
PRODUCTION 5.000

White blend of Istrian Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris in an equal ratio. It aged in wooden barrels for 15 months. Istrian Malvasia gives it a regional note, Sauvignon Blanc gives it softness, and Pinot Gris its character. Wine was also macerated with the grape skin, but for a much shorter amount of time than Sv. Jakov. Aromas of lemon curd, acacia blossoms, caramel and Clementine. It's full and rich, almost sherry-like, orange and salty, with a little touch of barrel influence. Gorgeous.
