Moscatel De Alejandría

Filitas y Lutitas

Sierras de Málaga Moscatel Pedro Ximénez 2017

Very unusual blend of 90% Moscatel de Alejandría (Muscat of Alexandria) and 10% Pedro Ximénez - varieties traditionally used for dessert wines. Fruit is sourced from vineyards on poor slate and schist (filitas and lutitas) soils at over 3,000 ft altitude in the Axarquía, a rugged, mountainous region in southern Spain known for its breathtaking steep slope-vineyards, some up to 70% (which also lend their name to the winery, vertical vineyards). After a 24-hour maceration with its skins, the Muscat was fermented in very old 3,300-liter foudres purchased from Brandy-producer Larios while the Pedro Ximénez was aged in 600-liter barrels. Aged for 10 months in foudre. Somewhere between a generoso and a white wine, the wine is savory, complex and mineral, with aromas of dry herbs, almonds, hints of Brandy and long, salty finish. — 19 days ago

Susucaru Sesta Edition Rosato Malvasia Blend

Incredible;( summer on a cold fall day. Sunlight, kind of moody. Walking wine, is that a category? Brings light to conversation. Fresh berries. Energetic. Possibly hyper. But somber — 16 days ago
