Malvazija (Malvasia)

White, dry

Malvasia is the daughter of the Mediterranean. The fact that this variety also ripens in these parts indicates that the Mediterranean influence extends deep into the continent, well into Goriška Brda region. The style of Malvasia wine from the Goriška Brda region is surprisingly more structured, firm and robust compared to wines from the littoral region, which are more elegant and spicy. The mineral content of this wine is typical of the area.
The deeper golden-yellow colour indicates the high level of ripeness of the grapes. The wine’s bouquet is intense, surprisingly fruity and even overripe. The aroma of dry and fresh peaches and apricots blends with balsamic notes of Mediterranean maquis. It feels dry and robust in the mouth with distinct character of dry apricots. Its longer salty aftertaste and mineral content cleans the palate well. Malvasia definitely shows its varietal character. However, it is more the style of the Edi Simčič winery that is emphasized than are its varietal characteristics.
Ageing: 10 months in oak barrels.
Food: Goes well with more intense appetizers, which are prepared with Mediterranean spices, e.g. rosemary, bay leaves or with a main course that has a more firm structure such as a frog-fish dish.
