Description: A veritable orchard-in-a-bottle! This Italian grape makes an outstanding light, dry wine with peaches on the nose, pears and pineapple on the palate. Made in the style of a Pinot Grigio.

Varietal Definition
Semi-classic grape cepage of ancient, probably Greek, origin. Widely grown in Italy as distinctive area sub-varieties, such as Malvasia di Candia, Malvasia Istriana etc. Used to produce dry and sweet white, and light red, wines with high alcohol content and residual sugar. Also widely grown in Portugal and the island of Madeira where the important wine-name Malmsey is an English word corruption of Malvasia.
