Orange wine is big in Slovenia, and Vina Čotar's Malvazija is a great place to start exploring. The skins are left in contact with the wine to give it both an orange tinge, more flavour and a dose of tannin. The finished wine is gloriously, eccentrically different, with a nutty, slightly sour grapefruit flavour and the structure to age for years.
100% Malvasia Istriana
Slovenia > Primorski
The Kras farm is 5km from the sea in the village of Gorjansko, spread across 7.5 hectares.
Skins are left in contact with the wine to extract the orange colour. Fermented in barrels of mixed sizes and aged in old oak barrels for a minimum of two years. Unfiltered.
Drinks beautifully on release. Can develop fascinating levels of complexity for at least 10 years from vintage.
