“Made with organically grown grapes, this has delicate, enticing aromas reminiscent of ripe white stone fruit, crushed mint, pineapple and freshly made bread dough. On the linear, savory palate, notes of bitter almond and ginger accent a core of Bartlett pear and lemon drop before a tangy mineral close.”

“Rich and smoky with lots of gunflint complexity and some saline minerality all held together with lemon pith freshness.”
Vinous Reverie Notes
Malvira's wines are produced from estate fruit, organically farmed across 104 acres and 6 vineyards. Over the years, they have been one of the most ardent proponents of the Arneis grape. 42 of their 104 acres are devoted to the propagation of Arneis. It is the wine for which Malvira is renowned. In 2007, the Damontes purchased the Renesio vineyard, which they leased since 1983. Renesio is the Cru from which the Arneis grape was identified in 1478. In fact, it is unknown which came first, the name of the vineyard, or the name of the grape.
