In Sylvis Arbor Selection dessert malvasia is the result of the traditional drying of grapes that is handpicked at a specific time, choosing only healthy, smaller, and loose clusters. Clusters dry in the wooden boxes on straw, under controlled conditions, until the berries lose enough water, ie until the sugars are concentrated (even over 350 g / L). This is followed by sludging, maceration, pressing, and fermentation, then by precipitation, pouring, and finally - aging in wooden barrels.
Due to the extremely thick and sweet must, production takes a long time and the wine is ready only after three years. The result of a long-term work and effort is a wine full of sweetness, but also very lively thanks to well-balanced acids. It is deep amber in color, like golden nectar. An intense scent with notes of nuts, raisins, figs, and dried oranges is woven with a very sweet taste and a thick texture reminiscent of honey.
