Reviews & Scores
Rich and exotic, the NV New York Malmsey (Rare Wine Company) mingles aromas of gingerbread and cloves with notions of Christmas pudding, molasses and figs. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it's fleshy and muscular, with lively balancing acids and a long, lusty and generously spiced finish. This would work beautifully with rich desserts.
Rich and spicy, with a creamy texture and plenty of buttery notes to the dried apricot and roasted pineapple flavors. Smoke and cedary accents show on the plush finish.
The Rare Wine Company’s New York Malmsey is a bit darker in color than the Boston Bual, and carries closer to five percent residual sugar. The wine is quite a bit deeper-pitched aromatically than the Bual, offering up a mix of brown sugar, pain épice, orange peel, gentle herbal tones, dried cherries and a nice dollop of rancio in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and quite broad-shouldered, with a fine core and lovely interplay of acidity and sweetness on the long and well-balanced finish.
