Details

A single varietal Malvasía, El Grifo Malvasía Seco Colección is a dry Spanish white wine produced in the Canary archipelago by Bodegas El Grifo.

More specifically, the grapes come from ungrafted vines planted in volcanic soils in Lanzarote, amidst a landscape of lunar, otherworldly beauty.

Harvested by hand following traditional procedures, once in the cellar the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

After that, this Malvasía white wine wine was aged on its lees in order to enhance its creaminess and roundness.

Finally, El Grifo Malvasía Seco Colección 2018 from Lanzarote was gently filtered and clarified.

Additional Information

Appearance

The Spanish white wine El Grifo Malvasía Seco has a very bright, clean, pale yellow colour with some greenish glints and some steely tinges.

Nose

This original white wine made from Malvasía has a unique character. Aromas of pineapple, passion fruit, lime and white flowers, punctuated by remembrances of aromatic herbs. El Grifo Malvasía Colección also suggests some intriguing mineral undertones and hints of volcanic earth.

Palate

Harmonious and very refreshing. This white wine from Bodega El Grifo brings to the mind remembrances of mint, honey, white fruit, bitter herbs, and some mineral intimations. Great tension and focus, crisp acidity, and long, refreshing finish.

Our personal opinion

Nothing less than a Malvasia made from ungrafted vines grown in volcanic soils, El Grifo Malvasía Seco Colección 2018 will pair excellently with fish dishes.

    When in Lanzarote, drink Lanzarote wine. I enjoyed it very much and, back home, I ordered some cases right away.

    Lanzarote's most representative wine. Incredible aromas of pumice stone and volcanic earth, with a smooth body and a delicious ending.
