Damijan - 'Kaplja' Venezia Giulia 2015
This stylish orange wine from Damijan's estate in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy offers an intriguing blend of Chardonnay, Friulano and Malvasia grapes. It is straw yellow in colour with a sweet nose of honey, mandarin oranges, white peach and bergamot, reinforced by complexity from creamy nuances of flor and acacia. The palate offers a full-bodied texture with balanced acidity and a backbone of minerality. Considering its age, the tannin structure is well balanced, allowing for softness and structure at the same time. With dynamic aromas and multiple layers of complexity, this wine pairs perfectly with more aggressive dishes like chestnut risotto with Gorgonzola or grilled king prawns accompanied by a grilled artichoke salad. This is an ideal wine to enjoy on summer days with charcuterie and cheese boards or as an accompaniment to your favourite seafood dish.
