I also took a Croatian wine, Copa Malvazija 2010 from Istria. It had a very ozoney/reductive aroma at first so we decanted and left it for a couple hours. When we finally came back to it, it had transformed into a lovely wine! It smelled a bit oxidative (can a wine be both reductive and oxidative?) and appley, but had wonderful, floral perfume and waxy, white Musary character, too! Not terribly high in acidity, but moreish and not too heavy in the fruit department. Very nice! It's expensive for a Croatian wine at 20€ but worth it IMO.
