notes from the producer:
Spread through 30 Ha and encompassing several micro-locations, we grow the typical Czech varieties of grape; Malvazija Istarska, Teran and Muškat.
The white soil, microclimate and hilly terrain configuration gives our grapes the minerality, freshness and expressive characteristics specific to these varieties.
At the foot of the Motovun hill, the mythical Jason and the Argonauts sailed along the Mirna River, but the first inhabitants to leave traces populated this area in the period between 3,500 and 2,200 B.C.
The first mention of Motovun in written records dates back to 804 and after centuries of domination by the Germans and the Patriarchs of Aquileia, Motovun asked Venice to be accepted under its rule in 1278 and remained so until 1797.
At the time of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy this area was renowned for the growing of trees used in ship-building.
The most important red grape variety in the Istrian region.
Teran has a ruby red color that with aging passes into brick red tones. Full and strong bodied with a flavour and nose of forest fruits.
It’s accidity and tannins give it roundness and a long after taste.
Ideal for longer aging.
