Mi = Matija & Irena = us (en.) = noi (it.) = mi (sl.)
This is the wine for us. Matija loves Malvazija and Irena loves Sauvignon. So the cuvee of Malvasia and Sauvignon was an obvious choice. The challenge was how to define the ratio. But this was also solved easily: Matija is taller and drinks more than Irena; hence in Mi there is 70% Malvasia and 30% Sauvignon.
In Mi we try to express the balance between Sauvignon, which is aromatic, but light and crispy and Malvasia, which is more powerful and full-bodied because of the full ripeness of the grapes.
The intertwined aromas give you hints from both; exotic fruits like mango mixed with aromas and a touch of herbs. The taste is also a blend of Sauvignon’s crispiness and Malvasia’s full body and richness.
Mi is 100% fermented in stainless steel. When the fermentation of Malvasia begins, the fermentation of Sauvignon is almost over, so we blend the two parts together already during Malvasia’s fermentation.
