As a leading high quality winery in Istria and Croatia in general, Veralda were very proud to earn first prize for their Malvazija Prestige at the first annual World of Malvasia competition of international Malvasia wines in 2009. This competition, held in Poreč, included over 400 Malvasia wines from all over the world. Their success was helped by their grand cru vineyard positions on the beautiful hills of Buje, which have a reputation for their special microclimates with soil characteristics that bring out the best of the indigenous grape varietal Malvazija Istarska.
The wine has straw-yellow color with slight greenish reflections. Floral notes of elderberry flowers, honey and acacia with a hint of fruitiness (pineapple notes). On the palate, baked apples with notes of citrus and passion fruit. Refreshing and full of flavours that never seem to finish. Characteristically it gives a great , long finish, like fruity candy in the mouth, enriched by its extraordinary freshness due to its minerality.
Food pairing: fish and seafood dishes, but due to its great body, it pairs very well even with red meats
