Fenech Malvasia delle Lipari Passito 2013, Sicily, Italy

Country: Italy

Colour / Style: Sweet

Featured in: Episode 7

As chosen by: Matthew Goode

This is bottled Sicilian sunshine. Almost literally. Malvasia grapes are laid out on mats and dried giving the wine the characteristic aromas of dried fig and apricot and that rich, sticky texture. It’s actually not excessively sweet and my favourite combination is this with some blue cheese and nuts over a long evening.
