Marko Fon, Malvazija (2018). Kras, Slovenia. Malvazija.
From a remote plot of forty year old vines, it spends two days on skins and a year in old casks. This is a benchmark for the varietal, combining the grape’s gorgeous aromatics and cleansing acidity with impeccable balance. The finish is salty and whistle clean, a hallmark of the limestone soils of the Kras.
