Tasting notes Valdelana Malvasía

Valdelana Malvasía 2017 is a light and aromatic white wine. This vintage shows all its aromatic potential, with ripe white fruit and marked floral notes. In the mouth, it is pleasant, honest and with a long and fresh finish.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
Sight

Attractive yellow with greenish tones. 

Nose

Floral notes and intense undertones of tropical fruit. 

Taste

Fresh and fleshly, very enjoyable. Long finish.
