Vipava 1894, Malvazija Lanthieri 2018, Vipava Valley, Slovenia
Tasting Note: A refreshing Slovenian white wine with bright fruit and a touch of oak.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of golden apple, bosc pear, and blossom with hints of vanilla.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied white wine has medium-plus-intensity, green-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing a medium-plus finish.
There are some notes of grapefruit in the midpalate that give the wine some added depth and interest.
This wine may make you want to go down the Slovenian wine rabbit hole like it does for me.
Bottle Note: Dry white wine. Handpicked grapes. Estate bottled.
