Escala Humana Livvera Malvasia 2018
Producers Name: Escala Humana Wines
Region: Mendoza, Argentina
Style: Skin Macerated White Wine
Vinification: Grapes are de-stemmed. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts in a 2500- litre concrete egg and spends 60 days on the skins to extract the essence of the grapes. It is then pressed and racked into old French oak barrels where it stayed for eight months before being put into bottle without fining or filtration.
Vegan? : Yes
Malvasía is rare in Argentina, this striking example from old vines spends 60 days on skins, giving texture and mouthfeel to this delicate perfumed wine. The winemaker, Germán, says it is the ideal accompaniment to barbecued mollejas (sweetbreads) we think it would pair beautifully with lots of dishes.
