San Lurinz Hydra Malvasia 2019

9.1-9.2

2019 “Hydra” Sparkling Goriška Brda, by Kabaj.

First Slovenian Pet Nat! Woot!

Lite & tasty notes of Golden fruit, honey, stones, floral, apricot nectar with a lemon twist. Similar notes on the nose.

Slight haze, some loose lees notable.

Eager bubbles, heard the bottle pop from other room. Crown cap with plastic stopper underneath. Good stream bead and saturation.

13% ABV

If you are in the SF Bay Area, highly recommend pairing with Dish n’ Dash Chicken Shawarma Wrap; Jerusalem Style (Hummus/Eggplant/Cauliflower). Good pairing synergy.

Cantine Colosi

Malvasia delle Lipari Passito di Salina 2009

Cantine Colosi Malvasia Delle Lipari Passito Di Salina 2009: Grown on the island of Salina, off the coast of Sicily (part of the volcanic Aeolian Islands or Isole Eolie), this wine presents a milder sweetness than I am used to. Strong honey aromas dominate the nose however the warm orange & nectar flavors soothe the palate and bring a familiar smile to my face. Mild hints of apricot & fig appear on other sips as I finish the glass and tasting experience. Overall, a good dessert wine to end any evening. Have a great week! Cheers🍷 — 8 days ago

Boogie Nights Larner Vineyard Malvasia Bianca 2019

I’ve posted this before, but this is just a terrific wine from Paul Lato. Highly recommended if you’d like an incredibly well-made, crisp, bright malvasia with a Central Coast fare to it. Awesome. — 4 days ago

Seriously fun! Love southern Italian when it’s like this. For an absolute steal... this must have been a monster when young. A little air is ok with it. — a month ago
