A Croatian muscat wine has been named among the world’s best sweet wines in 2022 at the Decanter World Wine Awards.
Judges at this year’s prestigious awards scored the best dessert wines from all over the world and among the winners was a muscat wine from Istria in Croatia.
From Croatia, Australia, New Zealand, Slovenia and Greece to Canada, South Africa and China, nations around the world saw sweet success, Decanter said.
Benvenuti winery made the list for the world’s best dessert wines with their 2017 San Salvatore Muškat.
“A classic style that’s powerful, rich and reminiscent of Sauternes. Fully botrytised, it has gorgeously concentrated dried apricot, orange peel, brown sugar, buckwheat, honey and baked apple flavours, finishing with a long honeyed tail. Alc 13%.”
Benvenuti’s winery is part of their family home in Kaldir near Motovun and was founded back in 1946.
