El Grifo Malvasía Lías 2019

We have been making this age-worthy wine since 2010 because this method showcases the varietal characteristics of the Malvasía grape best.  It has won many awards in international wine competitions.

PRODUCTION 

The grapes came from plots of four winegrowers in Tinajo (Mª Delia H., Mª Elena L., Mª Teresa M. and Ramón Q.) and were harvested on 25 July 2019.  The grape bunches were brought to the winery in 18-20 kg crates on the same day, where they were kept in cold storage until the next day. They were then transferred to the press without destemming. After 24 hours of static settling, the must started fermenting with our own yeast. Once fermentation came to an end, half of the batch was placed in 500-litre French oak barrels, while the remaining half was placed in tanks. The lees were kept in suspension for three months for both the barrels and the tanks. 

After both batches were blended, battonage was performed in tanks and the wine was aged on lees until been clarified and bottled. This was done on 23 April 2020. Since then, it has been bottle aged.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Straw yellow, with light golden hues. Clear and bright.

Aroma: Medium-high intensity of a wine in evolution.  Fresh, citrus (orange peel) and tropical (passion fruit and mango) fruits. Flowers (orange blossom, jasmine, violets), fennel, and complex aromas such as silex or flint (phosphorus). Yeast autolysis is reminiscent of the aromas of baked goods and yeast. Bottle ageing brings out hints of dried fruit, honey and caramel.

Taste:  Full-bodied, with a lengthy texture, very strong natural acidity, citrus freshness, mineral notes and saltiness. Persistent finish.
