Enjoying Istraditional served in a wide burgundy glass reveals the gentle scent gradually opening to associations with clementines, lime zest, lemongrass, and other spices.

Dedicated to the tradition, it visually represents a step away from modern fresh Malvasia, blurred in a golden-yellow tone. Notes of dried ferns, quinces baked on wood, a little dried pea, then dry mold, and a note of caramel are mixed with notes of dried apricot and a hint of honey. The wine is dry, warm, and soft, while on the other hand has a robust freshness. Present tannins have excellent minerality and a full body. The wine is balanced, the intensity is pronounced, and the taste is very long-lasting.

This truly complex emulsion of Malvasia Istriane reveals a balance on a deeper level and requires little time in which the suppressed energy is gradually released as the wine opens and changes.

The wine was macerated for 9 days and then aged for 12 months in barrels. Maturation in the bottle lasted for the next four to six months before it arrived on the market. The wine has not undergone the process of filtration and has kept the misted golden-yellow color.
The wine won the Gold Medal in the category of macerated Malvasia at the 22nd festival “Festival Malvasia” held in Portorož in 2020.

Love, energy and courage are the main drivers of the Trapan winery. From 2005 until today and thanks to the effort and perseverance, Trapan family have created 12 ha of ecologically clean vineyards, and they continue to transfer the acquired knowledge and experience through the cellar, creating fine and elegant wines of a specific character, recognizable, with a special Mediterranean note. The vineyards are located in the very south of Istria, in Šišan, in the Cuf position, and cover an area of ​​12 ha of Istrian red soil rich in minerals and imbued with limestone. The Trapan winery is part of the organic production system because they want to preserve the uniqueness and naturalness that the vine provides. Malvasia is the most common white variety, with Chardonnay coming in second. Teran predominates in black varieties, an autochthonous assortment with great potential. Among them there are also merlot, cabernet sauvignon, and syrah, whose potential is especially evident due to the minerality of the soil and proximity to the sea.
