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.

Vanilla through which floral notes characteristic of the dominant Chardonnay project. Then fine fruity notes which move from orange peel and a little homemade peach towards, apricot. In the second wave notes of wet grass that and even wet black truffles. The wine is dry, partially warm and almost soft, but on the other hand even pleasantly cool, a bit of tannins are present.
