WHY I LOVE IT from Sommelier Kristin Olszewski: "Malvasia is one of those grapes that can either remind you of your grandmother’s perfume or transport you to that night where you turned, by accident, down a street covered in blooming night jasmine.
We clearly prefer the latter. We’ve blended it with chardonnay - one of my favorite grapes when she’s treated with respect (and one of the three grapes allowed in Champagne)!
The chardonnay component has been lovingly fermented in both stainless steel and neutral barrel - we believe in prioritizing balance over oak but the neutral barrel gives a touch of texture. The resulting blend has a bit of everything - acidity, texture, bright fruit and pretty aromatics!"
