Château Malartic Lagraviere – Malartic Blanc

Grapes are handpicked and harvested and go for the vinification and maturation processes.

Fermentation happens in oak barrels with a controlled temperature of 20-22° with slow pressing and requires cooling to avoid forming of tartrate crystals in the wine.

Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
