Vina Kozlovic Istria Malvazija 2019

A textured wine with floral aromas and flavours of
peach zest and spicy tropical fruit.


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 south-westerly orientation to maximise their exposure to
the sun. The soils are made up of flysch, limestone and clay. The grapes are
manually harvested at optimum maturity.


Winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested and carefully selected by hand. The berries
were cold macerated for 12 to 24 hours in stainless steel, extracting the aromas and
flavours, prior to being gently pressed. The must was fermented with selected yeasts
in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to preserve the freshness and fruitforward aromas. Maturation took place in stainless steel and lasted for a minimum of
seven months.


Tasting Note
A crisp, zesty, mineral rich wine with a complex nose of lemon, apple with apricot,
peach, pineapple and delicate hints of spice. Fresh, yet opulent on the palate with
the fruit characters from the nose echoed on the palate, combined with a mineral
complexity. The finish has a touch of characteristic saltiness and spice making it very
food-friendly.
