Malvasia La Belle, Cantine Orsogna

£13.99

This ancient grape variety is planted widely throughout the Mediterranean and is thought to have originated in Crete. One sip of Orsogna’s example is all you need to understand why they called it ‘La Belle’ (Beauty). It’s  pale gold in colour with nectarine, fresh flower, honey and lychee  aromas. The palate is soft and ripe with notes of stone fruits and orange zest. The lush flavours are balanced perfectly by fresh acidity, and there’s a long rewarding finish.
