2008 Damjanić «Malvazija akacija» – Istrian Malvasia

by Gogo on February 1, 2010

in All wines,EatIstria Vino

Malvasia aged in acacia barriques. Straw yellow color with golden reflections. In the nose there are dry white flower, acacia honey, grapefruit and soft aromas of dry wood. In the mouth dry, warm (alc. 13%) and round, but a lack of acidity ruins the balance. Flavors are less intense than aromas. Again mineral but now also slightly bitterish in the finish due to the wood tannins. I prefer the version without the wood, but its grapefruit aromas made me think of trying it nicely cooled as an aperitif.

Tasting note that follows the post about Damjanić Winery.
