varietal/s
Moscato & Girgentina of Malta (PASSITO)
tasting notes

Made from sun-dried estate grown Moscato and carefully selected Girgentina grapes, the golden yellow Baltis has a bouquet of dried figs, sultana raisins, dates, hints of citrus and slightly toasted honey notes. The wine’s luscious palate is enhanced by its fresh, crisp finish.

vintage report

This vintage was characterized by the very little rainfall. Temperatures were in line with seasonal averages, except for winter which was slightly warmer. Due to the high temperatures in January and February sprouts occurred slightly earlier than in the previous year. Because of the little rain and excessive heat on the island, the grapes matured in advance but despite this, we have obtained good productions for all the varieties in our vineyards. Having invested a lot of time in the vineyard, managing the foliage of the plants and maximizing the water in the soil, we have achieved some very good wines, which despite the warm weather, all in all, are very fresh, well balanced characterized by lively aromas in the whites and deep intense colors in the reds.

vintage report

Although winter temperatures were colder than normal, rainfall was average. The slightly larger bunches than normal were offset by an earlier ripening of the grapes. This vintage demonstrated that, despite the warm microclimate, grapes can achieve an optimal ripening level – bouquet-wise and palate-wise, thanks to the vineyard’s proximity to the sea.
