Producer Note
The Kozlović family have been making wine in the Istrian region of Croatia since 1904.
The region borders Friuli and the wines, food and people have a real connection
with their Italian neighbours. The winery is run by Gianfranco and Antonella Kozlović
and they currently cultivate 25 hectares of vineyard. Gianfranco is a perfectionist
and he is constantly striving to improve his wine. He takes a modern approach to
winemaking and produces seriously good wines.
Vineyard
The vineyard is located in Santa Lucia in Western Istria at altitudes of between 200 to
240 metres above sea level. The age of the vines varies from nine to 54 years, but all
are planted with a south to southwesterly orientation to maximise their exposure to
the sun. The soils are made up of flysch, limestone and clay.
Winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested and carefully selected by hand. The berries
were then cold macerated for 24 hours in stainless steel, extracting the aromas and
flavours from the Malvazija berries. The grapes were then pressed and the must was
fermented in stainless steel, preserving the freshness and the integrity of the primary
aromas, followed by maturation for a minimum of seven months in stainless steel.

Serving Suggestion
A food friendly and versatile wine, this makes the perfect pairing with risottos, fresh
scallops, delicate white fish, poultry dishes served in a creamy sauce and grilled
vegetables.
