IGT Maltese Islands – Indikazzjoni Geografika Tipika
Made exclusively from raisined Moscato 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.
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.
The name ‘Baltis’ recalls the sun goddess worshipped by Phoenician traders around the Mediterranean.
The Baltis was first released in 2014 (vintage 2012) with a very limited yield of just 405 (375ml) bottles.
Available in 375ml.
