Overview

Made from raisined grapes, the Malvasía Aromática Naturalmente Dulce is a naturally sweet wine from ancient vines of Malvasía planted on deep, ashy, volcanic soils. Victoria Torres makes this wine in the traditional way allowing the grapes to begin to ferment naturally in an old wooden lagar made from the indigenous tea-pine. Once fermentation starts the grapes are pressed and transferred to a stainless steel tank where fermentation is allowed to continue without any manipulation, temperature control or additives. Once it stops the wine is allowed to rest a few month before bottling. It is kept at least 12 months, and frequently longer, before release.
