News from the Malene Mavens

With Gratitude

2020 is not a year we’ll soon forget, as communities across the country grapple with uncertain times. Like many other wineries we have had to adjust to a new way of doing business at Malene. It’s been a challenge, but we want you to know how grateful we are for your messages of support, your continued patronage and your love of all things Malene! We hope our wines have added joy to your days. We feel blessed to have such wonderful customers and club members, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Linguine with Clams

Perfect Pairings

He’s done it again! Sommelier and resident brand specialist William Becker has donned his toque and come up with another fabulous pairing idea: linguine with clams. This dish pairs perfectly with the Rolle in your shipment, and is always a crowd pleaser!

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook 12 oz linguine until al dente then drain. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, melt 4 T butter. Add 4 minced cloves of garlic, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and 2 T of fresh chopped parsley. Cook until fragrant - about 1 minute. Add 1 lb of fresh littleneck clams and ½ cup of dry white wine. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook until clam shells open - 7 to 10 minutes - discarding any unopened clams. Add juice of 1 lemon and cooked linguine and toss until combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve with lemon wedges. 

Malene Rosé

2019 Malene Rosé

The 2019 Malene Rosé comprises four varietals for a wine that is mouth-filling yet crisp, dry and complex. Grenache supplies the backbone with copious melon and strawberry notes and a delicious creamy texture. Vermentino lifts the wine’s fragrance with notes of white flowers and lychee. The Cinsault is exuberant, fruity and fresh, while the Mourvedre imparts a savory, slightly herbaceous character. 

With plenty of fruit and a long acid-driven finish, this wine pairs well with cuisine ranging from fresh oysters to pasta puttanesca.

2019 rolle

Rolle (also known as Vermentino) is a traditional component of classic rosé and one of our favorite varietals when bottled on its own. Rolle is beloved for its wonderful fragrance and our 2019 is no exception. Enticing notes of honeydew melon, pomelo, and peach pit on the nose lead to a soft and creamy textured wine with notes of green apple and marzipan. The wine's zippy acidity lends the wine an exceptionally refreshing finish.

In addition to the linguine receipe above, this wine will pair well with cuisine ranging from salad niçoise to grilled chicken and can be aged for up to two years.

Malene Grenache Noir

2018 Grenache Noir

Grenache Noir is a traditional component of classic rosé and one of our favorite varietals when bottled on its own. Our 2018 Grenache Noir displays the exuberant black fruit flavors and rich, spice characteristics typically found in Grenache from cool coastal climates. The aromas are bright and bursting with notes of black raspberry, pie crust, and bay leaf. On the palate, the wine has vibrant acidity, fine-grained tannins, and notes of cracked white pepper and black cherries.

This wine pairs well with cuisine ranging from ratatouille to pork tenderloin and can be aged for up to five years.
