Victoria Torres Pecis (Matias i Torres) - Malvasia Naturalmente Dulce 2012
(La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain) 50cl
We have been holding on to this back vintage of Viki's singular and mind-bending sweet Malvasia for a while now, and are happy to release just a handful of bottles for the webshop. This is a naturally made dessert wine as per the generations-old tradition of using the same Canarian Pine press for the last 120+ years. A rare balance of sweetness, gorgeous refreshing acidity, and a lingering mineral, salty finish. A truly one of a kind wonder that comfortably sits amongst the world's best.
Victoria Torres is one of the very few growers still producing wine on La Palma. The work is painstaking and the yields are minuscule, but the results are more than worth the effort. She makes wines that have it all - a strong sense of place, intense complexity, buckets of energy, and that little extra 'magic' that you can't learn or replicate.
