Slovenian Malvazija from Goriska Brda. Unfamiliar stuff - but let us assure you this is no gimmick. Winemaker Darinko Ribolica is making pristine modern wines in the hills which stretch from Venezia Giulia in northeast Italy into western Slovenia. The nearby Adriatic and Alpine breezes result in wines that have amazing poise - round, giving, stylishly cool.
No oak. Ripe orchard fruits, fresh almonds, white flowers and a wonderfully round texture. Love the label too.
