Damijan Podversic Malvasia Istriana 2009

Damijan Podversic Malvasia Istriana 750ML 2009   
Sku: 000000037706

Meeting a producer like Damijan Podversic brings you face to face with the type of enthusiasm, reverence, and eccentricity needed to produce world class wines. Damijan stopped by the shop not long ago, and before he left we had tasted some gorgeous northern Italian whites, been educated on why his mentor, Josko Gravner, is the greatest producer in Friuli, and had one of our empty cardboard boxes converted into a priceless, multifunctional graph explaining everything from ideal seed maturity, to aging potential in the cellar, to how noble rot produces Beethoven-like wines while its absence creates something more akin to AC/DC. Bear in mind that he spoke no more than five words of English in the time we spent together. We were riveted by his bombastic personality and genuine humility, and honored to taste through his current releases while hearing his personal insights.

The Malvasia is rich, and golden hued. It offers ripe orchard fruit, white flower perfume, a touch of cinnamon, and orange peel. The wine’s almost chewy texture is evidence of its extended skin contact, and the silky finish is elegantly lengthy. Being that he is Italian, we weren’t exactly surprised to hear Damijan liken his wines to different types of women. This Malvasia, he feels, is a woman whose beauty you can see coming from a mile away.
