Bright and sleek, this jolly yellow wine recalls the mid afternoon sun’s reflection on straw bales and the ancestral elegance of a grape born of the Aegean´s breeze. It is shown in a wine full of tropical memories with passion fruit, lime and hints of white flowers.
At first taste, it is honest, with delicious evidence of a Mediterranean fruity flavour.
However, it possesses a surprisingly delicate creaminess on the mouth. There is a remarkable contrast between the freshness of the wine and the elegant aftertaste which we would like to define as “charismatic”.
Instructions for use
Ideally served with grilled white fish.
History of the variety
Analyzing the origin of this variety, it is convenient distinguish between the Malvasia grape and the Malvasia wine. Despite the unclear origin of the grape, it is believed that it comes from the Greek coast.
On the other hand, the Malvasia wine clearly comes from Italy, where it is a well regarded wine. The term “malvasia” would be a derivative of the name of the Greek town “Monemvasia”.
The wine comes from that region of Italy where medieval lands spread through France along the Mediterranean.
As an evidence of the nobility of the grape, it is said that George Plantagenet, 1st Duke of Clarence, the brother of Edward IV of England, drowned in “a butt of Malmsey” in the Tower of London in 1478.
