Collio Bianco Stare Brajde Collio DOC - 2018
Stare Brajde is a unique blend of Tocai Friulano, Malvasia Istriana and Ribolla Gialla. The grapes are sourced from a specific location, with the perfect sun exposure, elevation, and fertile soils. A rather more relevant cuvèe from the Muzic family, which shows an important aging potential for this particular wine.
Ivan Muzic, is been guiding the family company now for thirty years. His great passion for nature and his land makes him a free spirit born to live within his vineyard beside the weather or the season. Orieta, the wife, together with Elija and Fabian, the sons, have been supporting the father's passion both in the vineyards and in the cellar for years. The company holds 20 ha of planted vines and seems that there is no reason to stop growing. Their mission is first to respect three main objectives: growth, tradition, and environment. This love for nature, its fruits, and the environment let them obtain the MAGIS certification, which guarantees the full environmental sustainability of the wines.
This wine shows a rich yellow color which deepens with a beautiful golden hue with the age. On the nose is delicate, with elegant notes of ripe fruit, nuts, bread crust, and butter. Opulent and balanced in the structure, with a persistent complexity and length.
Vinification through de-stemming and crushing of the grapes following a maceration on the skin of 12 hours, at low temperature. The wine is oak-fermented for 8-10 days. Follows prolonged aging on the lees with constant batonnage until bottling. Rest in bottle for 12 months before release.
