The Roxanich Montona is our full-hearted welcome to the worlds of the Malvasia Istriana grape and macerated white wines.
Unlike many of the “fresh style” Malvasia Istriana, Roxanich`s interpretation is more a wine alike, profound and arguably authentic expression of the classic Malvasia Istriana.
The Roxanich Montona is fresh and macerated from a few hours to a few days, subject to vintage, and has no extreme skin contact duration.
Fresh and macerated from a few hours to a few days, subject to vintage, the Roxanich Montona offers intense and seductive aromas, a superb fruity concentration, and yet is well-balanced with subtle acidity. On the nose come wafts of acacia blossoms, beeswax, chamomile and dried fruits.
This perfectly lively wine then goes on to reveal its mineral character and full volume with intriguing saltiness. The Roxanich Montona is full of energy and warmth that gives a youthful glamour to this wine - a genuine welcome message to Istria in a bottle.
