Having never tried this Viura-Malvasia blend before, we say it's nicely done. The nose rings of baked apple and deftly applied oak, while the palate is fresh but also deep and textured. Flavors of apple and pear are accented by vanilla and toast, and overall it's composed and shows character. Drink now through 2012. Only 250 cases made.
