This week saw the launch of Marsovin’s 1919 new vintages embellished with labels designed by James Vella Clark.
The 1919 Red vintage 2012 is produced from selected grapes of the indigenous Gellewza red variety. The harvested bunches were laid down to dry in the sun before being vinified resulting in a concentration of the Gellewza grape’s natural sugars, acidity and colour.
This full bodied red wine has intense fruity aromas of mature prunes with light liquorish finish. On the palate it is silky and smooth with velvety tannins and a pleasant lingering sweet finish. It perfectly complements grilled or roast meats, charcuterie and mature cheeses.
The 1919 white vintage 2012 is D.O.K. Gozo, made, for the first time, of 100% Chardonnay grapes. Refreshing with citrus aromas, it delivers the palate a crisp and herbaceous feeling underlined by mineral hints, making it an ideal partner to creamy pasta dishes or white meats and fish.
