Corona Grande 2020

This is our basic dessert wine that comes from the namesake vineyard. It is a blend of Malvasia Istriana and White Muscat with a smaller percentage of a rare local variety called Ulovina. Corona Grande is a late harvest wine, with grapes additionally dried up to three months after the harvest to concentrate the sugar and balance the acidity at the optimum level. The result is a very sweet wine with a dense texture and a delicious finish.

It was generally a warm year, almost droughty, with little rain from March to August, then some more rainfall in September, but a very dry October. In terms of the vegetative cycle, there was somewhat less lushness, but a high concentration of sugar and moderate yield. Since the harvesting time was before the September rains, the grapes were eventually very healthy. The harvest took place in early September.

Description:

Deep and dark golden colour. Exceptionally aromatic on the nose, sweet and lively on the palate. Excellent balance between the acidity and sweetness. In this blend, Malvasia gives the body, White Muscat adds the aroma, and Ulovina provides freshness. The smell is intense and rich, Muscat aromas mixed with raisins, dried apricots and peach jam. The taste is very sweet and dense, concentrated, both lively and opulent, with a long finish, seductively calling for another sip.

Gastronomic recommendation:

With fresh fruit like strawberries, slices of apple, nuts like almonds and cashews. Also, with softer and more aromatic cheeses, like white mould cheese.
