Kocjančič Truške 2
Hello wine lovers!
I am in a pleasant company at this time and I want to share it with you. I’m talking about Malvazija 2007, produced by the Kocjančič family. After a 24-hour, temperature controlled maceration in open vinificators 50% of it laid in inox and 50% in oak barrels for 12 months. It has 13,5 vol. % of alcohol.
The wine is of a straw yellow color, with golden nuances, it is crystal clear and rather dense.
It is rather to intense and fine on the nose. You can find flowery nuances of acacia, grown fruit like pineapple, citurses, hazelnuts and spices like liquorice. I could also smell a bit of honey nuance. Definitely of a reach bouquet.
It is dry, rather hot which means the alcohol is well incorporated and of a rather softness. It is fresh, mineral and rather balanced with freshness and mineralty prevailing. This wine is elegant, intense, full-bodied and has a lastingly aftertaste.
It is definitely a harmonic wine and properly mature. It has a lot of life in it.
This is an elegant, well-structured Malvazija with reach aromas. In mouth it surprises with a wave of freshness only to open the palate to the mineralty and its body.
I’d recommend this wine with seafood or white meat.
I visited Kocjančič vineyards twice last year and always had a terrific time with Tadej. Here’s some moments I caught with my camera, hope you’ll get a nice insight at where and how their wine is produced.
Hello wine lovers!
