The avid fanatic that I am, it’s hard not to make mention of tennis at this time of year! And so much more reason right now… Today sees a massive show-down between World #2 Novak Djokovic and Croatia’s very own Marin Cilic coincide with the launch of our very own Croatian Malvasia white wine.
I’d love to coin some comparisons between Mr Cilic and Malvazija Benvenuti – I could suggest aromatic and fruity, but Cilic may be offended and this thin attempt. So let’s try again…… This super-striking Malvasia Istarska is serious and harmonious in one and reflective of where modern Croatian winemaking is moving towards. There is a richness and minerality that keeps the focus of quality and an almost intoxicating varietal powerfulness that draws your attention. I sense the Benvenuti family have created something very special here and we should not consider this wine as anything other than amongst the finest Croatia has to offer.
So, Mr Cilic, fulfill your potential and blast Novak off the court. We’re gunning for both you and the great white wines of Croatia!
