2021 Malvasia Bianca

Grown in Betty's Vineyard right outside our winery terrace, four rows of Malvasia Bianca grow. We wanted to try something new with a small amount of the 2021 vintage. As the only producer in Napa Valley, this fun varietal proves to be quite diverse. Fermented dry with aromatic notes of honeysuckle and jasmine. Asian pear and Meyer lemon curd with hints of apple blossoms. This wine is light with bright acid and refreshing. Malvasia Bianca made in this style is unique and quickly became a staff favorite.

Vineyard Notes
Betty's Vineyard is home to Betty Ballentine, our winery, and all of our white wines. This vineyard was purchased in 1944, by Betty's late husband Van Ballentine along with his father John Ballentine. The soil is Bale clay with moderate drainage, producing expressive wines with soft textures.
Winemaker Notes
The Malvasia Bianca’s nose will transport you to a field blooming with jasmine and roses and an orchid filled with tree-ripe peaches. The floral and stone fruit flavors intertwine beautifully with a crisp and mineral-driven palate. I loved making this wine! As a winemaker, it was so fun to make something so unique." Assistant Winemaker Angela Carvalho
