La Nave is a new bottling for Pablo, all Malvasia from two young parcels that he is very excited about. Each parcel was fermented separately and the wines were then blended. About 25% of the juice saw skin contact for a few days, and the rest was direct press. The small amount of skin contact is a really nice touch with the Malvasia, subduing a bit of the floralness and giving fleshiness to the wine. That being said, this white remains wonderfully aromatic, as a Malvasia wine should be, with a more earthy and smoky profile, courtesy of the volcanic soils of Lanzarote.
