Matošević Alba Malvazija 2018

Described by Steven Spurrier as “Croatia’s best winemaker”, Ivica Matošević has established himself as a force of nature in the country’s burgeoning wine industry. This is due to his unbridled passion, which led him to divert his career from a Ph.D. in agriculture, to winemaking. This passion is reflected both in his wines, which are exuberant, fresh and true to their nature and in what he has achieved for the reputation of Croatian wine. Widely recognized as one of the leaders of the quality revolution amongst his peers, he was instrumental in setting up the Istrian appellation and establishing the wildly popular annual wine fair which takes place there to promote the wines. We believe that Ivica’s view on his personal journey is reflected in his wine: “[I am a] better man today, more honest and common, more natural and more savage, all due to changes in my life circumstances.”
