Bodegas Fariña Colegiata Malvasia 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This sprightly, old-vines Malvasia from the Spanish region of Toro possesses a distinctive spritzy texture reminiscent of Vinho Verde from Portugal. White flowers and minerals on the nose move into spicy notes of crystallized ginger, clean, ripe citrus fruit, and blanched almonds on the palate. Fun, different, and very wallet-friendly!

Rarely has one name been so linked to one region. Founded in 1942, this premium family wine estate is well acknowledged as the founding fathers of the region of TORO. Their 100% commitment to quality, pioneering efforts, respect for the terroir and the unparalleled knowledge and belief in the region´s varietal TINTA DE TORO has helped them gain the reputation as one of the premium producers of TORO wines. At the helm is second generation Manuel Fariña, a key figure in the Spanish wine industry. Following his winemaking studies in several places, he returned to TORO with new ideas and new technology and single handely converted the rustic backwater region of TORO into a fine wine making region following the reduction of alcohol by changing the centuries old tradition of starting the harvest on the 12th October, introduction of stainless steel and temperature controls. With Bernardo Fariña, the third generation of Fariña winemakers, currently leading the winemaking team, the efforts of the past are set to continue well into the future. Read less

Intensiv, vielschichtig und viel versprechend: So offenbart sich dieser Reserva in der Nase. Stoffig, strukturiert und körperreich, das sind die Attribute, die diesen Qualitätswein auszeichnen. Im Gaumen offenbart sich eine mächtige Gerbstoffstruktur, die durch eine schöne Fruchtigkeit pariert wird. Fazit: Der sehr traditionelle, klassische Reserva hinterlässt einen komplexen, facettenreichen Sinneseindruck, der im Finale lange anhält und ein Genusserlebnis vermittelt.
