Wine region: Karst
Variety: malvasia istriana, vitovska
Intense straw yellow. The nose expresses beautiful notes of fresh and fragrant fruit: peach, apricot, raisins embellished with notes of yeast. In the mouth it is fresh, with excellent acidity, very drinkable and well balanced. Quite persistent, it closes with a defined and elegant finish.
Paring with food: Excellent as an aperitif, the Čotar sparkling wine goes well with salami appetizers and particularly fatty cheeses.
From the grapes to the bottling of the wine, we gradually move from floor to floor deeper and deeper into the cellar. The length of the maceration (contact of the mash with the strawberry skins) depends on the year and the judgment of the winemaker. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in an underground wine cellar in 200 to 2000 liter barrels. It is spontaneous, without the addition of selected yeasts. Without added sulfur, the wine is on the lees until the first flow.
The wines are matured in already wrapped oak barrels of various sizes, white for at least two years, red for four to five years. We do not filter wines. Sediment that may appear in the bottle as a result is not considered a defect.
