Birichino, Malvasia Bianca, Monterey, California, USA, 2018Regular price £21.00
This wine is a lot of fun. There's so much going on in the glass, it's hard to know what to pinpoint, exactly. To be bold, we would suggest notes of orange, blossom, apricot, jasmine and elderflower. Only two of those are nicked from the back label!
With so much fruit and perfume on the nose, you might be surprised to find the palate bone dry (phew). It's fairly full and certainly complex. If you are looking for exotic with spice, fruit and perfume, this is you perfect wine. If you usually enjoy crisp, citrusy, linear wines - this will be a question mark.
