Vineyard Notes
Central Coast

In 2013, Mother Nature provided an excellent grape growing producing average to slightly above average yields. For Malvasia, conditions were just about ideal producing a fruit forward, completely balanced wine.

Winemaker Notes
These Malvasia Bianca grapes were 100% hand harvested in the early-morning in San Bernabe Vineyard in southern Monterey County. Upon delivery to the winery, the grapes were delivered whole cluster and gently squeezed using a press. Hard press was separated from free run and treated separately. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tank until dryness where it was kept cold until bottling. A small amount of Verdelho, from our estate, was blended with the Malvasia enhancing the juiciness contributing to the depth of the blend.

Picked at a slightly higher brix level, the 2013 Malvasia is faintly different than the 2012 with heightened aromas full of lemon citrus and pineapple followed by the usual lychee and kiwi this wine typically exhibits. Taste is stellar and exceptionally pleasing on a hot summer day.

Other Notes
Italy, Malvasia Bianca has been planted across Europe since classical times. However, the ancient pedigree of this varietal does not result in predictable wines. Winemakers have used these multi-talented and exciting grapes to create dry wines, sweet wines, sparkling wines and dessert wines, as well as an aromatic, colorful addition to blends. We actually use a small percentage in our Chardonnay. Enjoy our mouthwatering 2013 Malvasia Bianca.
