2015 Festigia Vina Laguna

Grapes Malvasia
Colour White
Origin Croatia, Istria
ABV 13.5%

Very tangy and distinctive nose. Relatively low acidity but no shortage of astringency. Interesting novelty, if a bit more mainstream than some. Drinking range: 2017 - 2019 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - (Oct 2017)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

With its refreshing apple and pear aromas, this Istrian dry white displays a juicy fresh pear fruit quality on the palate with a ripeness of texture that's belied by a fine blade of crisp natural acidity on the finish, making it a good match for seafood. Rating: 88 (Jun 2017)

Vina Laguna

Vina Laguna hails from the Istrian Peninsular, opposite Venice at the northern end of the Adriatic sea. Grapes are drawn from a variety of soil types, dependant on grape variety and benefit both from the warm influences of a Mediterranean climate and the cooling breezes of the southern Alps. Recent tastings of old and new vintages have demonstrated that this is a winery with serious intent and now under the watchful eye of winemaker Milan Budinski, with experience in California's Napa, Sonoma, Chile's Maule and San Juan in Argentina, there is every reason for us to keep following the progression here. Changes in the vineyard are afoot. We take note when Milan says that, ''previously I was working with the material I had, now I'm working with the material I want''. His wines amply demonstrate this.
