It is believed that malvesia is a native Greek grape, but it seems to be quite prolific throughout the Mediterranean regions, especially in Italy. This offering from Caldora is a fruity, medium-bodied style of white that shows smells of pears, almonds, subtle stone fruits and honeysuckle on the nose. The palate is rounded and brightly-fruited, with rich poached pears and honey flavours, cleansing acidity, and a refreshing finish. This would be great with a fish soup.
Appearance: Straw yellow, transparent and very pale with greenish reflections.
Nose: Aromatic and floral, white flowers and white pulp fruit especially pears. Balsamic notes that reveal the quality of the wood.
Palate: Flavours are consistent with the nose. Fresh and fruity, seems sweet at first but crisp acidity provides structure. The partial malolactic fermentation gives the wine a fascinating taste but does not affect its freshness. Intense and persistent aftertaste.
