Boal / Malvasia Fina wine grape
Boal / Malvasia Fina
Malvasia Fina is grown throughout Portugal under a variety of names, but is typically known as Boal and is the same grape as the Boal or Bual of Madeira. A number of different varieties are called Boal in different parts of Portugal so the authorities decided in 2000 to make Malvasia Fina the official name for this one.
Its wine is quite subtle, with a tendency to high alcohol and only moderate acidity. Despite that it can age well and has an affinity with oak. There is often a smoky hint (even in unoaked wines) and scents of nutmeg and beeswax.
