Kozlovic Santa Lucia Malvazija (2008) – “Intense and long-lasting floral and stone fruit notes, particularly of peaches…rich, silky texture…extremely long and complicated finish.”

Located in Momjan on the Istrian Peninsula in north-western Croatia, Kozlović Santa Lucia Malvazija is harvested from a single vineyard, which contains fifty year-old vineyards. The hand-pick grapes enjoy five days of maceration on the skins, before being barrel-fermented using indigenous yeasts.
