Fifth Moon Malvasia Bianca 2019
One of the most fragrant varieties, Malvasia Bianca smells of spring in the bottle. With Ancient Greek origins, this bright, aromatic white wine is rarely heard of in California, yet deserves the spotlight.
Crisp notes of white peach, orange blossoms, lemongrass, honeydew melon, cardamom and slate are backed by a steely minerality that is both energetic and exotic. Hints of salinity and wet stone front a crunchy backbone of electric tension and sublime florality.
Oysters, shellfish, anything that comes out of the ocean and various Asian dishes
