The Corona Grande, a sweet wine named after the vineyard in which its grown, comes from a micro-climate at 350m altitude. The soil is white sand with clay. Malvasija Istriana (75%) is the dominant part of the blend with Muscat Cuvee and the aromatic, relatively forgotten Ulovina variety making up the blend. The grapes are picked late and dried for two months before being pressed and bottled. The result is a sweet, harmonious wine with aromas of acacia honey, raisins, cinnamon spice and dried apricots, but a lovely, peachy acidity that lifts the wine on the finish.
Pairs beautifully with: Apple and blackberry crumble, prune and Tokaji parfait, mille feuille or lemon meringue.
Cheese pairing: Blue cheese like Roquefort.
