Recommended by Rick Stein!

An modern version of a wine popular since the Middle Ages often referred to as Malmsey (or Marmsie).

 

Caramel in colour with bright blonde sheens.
A charming bouquet of aromas revealing ripe and candied fruits, quince paste, orange confit, honey, raisins and coffee shades.

 

Malvasia 2012 has a creamy and smooth mouthfeel with a balanced sweet and sour sensation and an aftertaste that does not seem to end, leaving a persistent flavour of toffee.
