The juice was fermented in 60% new and 40% second-fill barrels (mostly Nevers and Alliers with a 10% American Oak barrel selection to add a spicy character). The wine spent 8 months “sur lie” with occasional “batonage” to accentuate the leesy character. 28% tank-fermented Sauvignon Blanc was added to the blend.
This impressive Malvasia comes from the Abruzzo region of Italy. Pale gold in colour with a nose of ripe stone fruits and fresh flowers.

Vineyards around Lake Kaltern are very small in size and most of the winemakers in the region have less than one hectare of land, for a small winemaker it is virtually impossible to make and market their own wine so the co-operative of Kaltern was set up in 1906 with the goal of producing high quality wines.

This organic Pecorino, which is not to be confused with the cheese, takes its name from the Italian word ‘pecora’ meaning sheep.
