A stunningly perfumed, waxy white blend from Friuli in north eastern Italy.
This really interesting wine is a blend of 50% Malvasia Istriana, 30% Tocai Friulano and 20% Rhein Riesling, is unoaked and has had 7 months ageing on its lees. The Riesling comes to the fore at first with floral and lime notes, mid-palate the Malvasia and Friulano come forward giving the wine a lovely perfumed, waxy, full-bodied centre. The finish just keeps on going.
It'll change and develop different characteristics with age, but is wonderfully fresh now.
