Malvasier (Malvasia in Italian) adds new colours to South Tyrolean wines.
Malvasier is a spontaneous cross between Roter Veltliner and Silvaner. In Germany and Austria it is also called “Frühroter Veltliner” and often used as a blending grape. In South Tyrol, Malvasier is grown only on a small scale along the Wine Road.
Malvasier is not particularly demanding of its location, but sensitive to humidity and frost. However, it ripens very early producing wines of harmonious and spicy bouquet, high alcohol content and low acidity level. It is light red in colour and has a very special aroma. Malvasier wines go particularly well with chicken, fish and roast hare.
