Cotar Malvazija 2016 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
"From the grapes to the bottling and ageing, our wines descend deeper and deeper into the cellar. The length of maceration (contact of must with the grape skins) depends on the vintage and decision of the winemaker. Fermentation takes place underground, in barrels from 200 to 2000 litres, spontaneously without the introduction of selected yeast. Until its first decanting, our wine rests on the lees without any added sulphur.
The wines mature in wine-soaked oak barrels of various sizes: whites a minimum of two years, reds between four and five. We don’t filter our wines and don’t consider sediment a wine fault.
The combination of skin contact, and a lengthy time in old barrels, gives this wine intense depth and flavour, as well as a beautiful golden hue. It needs some time to open in the glass, and when it does it becomes silky, exotic and spiced." - Winery
"A deep golden yellow color, bordering on orange. Complex aroma grounded in ripe fruit with an exotic whiff and faint traces of wood. Characteristically gentle and elegant freshness, highly typical of this wine." - Importer Notes
