Roxanich Mirna

Regular price SFr. 26.00

Unusual yet conservative, the Roxanich Mirna is an exciting counterpoint to the traditional Sauvignon Blanc.

It is an adventurous taste experience, quiet on one side with a long and rich finish on the other. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, the Mirna is macerated for a few days only, eventually delivering the drinking back to the taste of Sauvignon Blanc.

The name on the label is dedicated to Mirna, Istria’s longest river, flooding the Motovun forest - the cradle of Istrian white truffles. It passes beneath the Roxanich Winery in Motovun and flows into the Adriatic Sea near Novigrad. In Roman times, Motovun was a harbour where small barges transported oil and wine giaras the larger trading ships in Mirna’s estuary port of Antenal. 

The Roxanich Mirna’s scents will guide you through a voyage of apples, wet leaf, hay and vanilla flower, while on the palate you will be offered the freshness of a Sauvignon Blanc paired with honeycombs and rosemary found in the minerality of this wine. Its harmonious body, well- balanced, elegantly acidic and tannic, is presented in a beautiful golden green color - a timeless vision of Istria’s historic winemaking culture.
