WINES OF ISTRIA

MEDALS

Silver Medals for Matošević Wines at International Wine Challenge 2013

Wednesday May 15th, 2013 * Morana

Croatian winemakers came back with excellent results from the International Wine Challenge, one of the most prestigious annual wine competitions in the world, taking place in London since 1983. Altogether, they harvested 19 medals and 22 commendations. Matošević wines won two silver medals, for Alba Antiqua 2009 and Grimalda White 2010. Both wines are unique because they are tightly connected to the location where they come from, which makes them interesting to knowledgeable foreign experts. Istrian Malvasia Alba Antiqua is special because of its specific vinification process, which includes a short maceration overnight and then fermentation and aging in acacia barrels. Grimalda White, a blend of Chardonnay, Istrian Malvasia and Sauvignon Blanc, is named after the area where the grapes are grown and it strongly reflects the terroir. Both wines regularly receive positive feedback and win awards, and the medals from the International Wine Challenge are a huge honor and compliment for our efforts.
