Sierras de Málaga Moscatel

This vino dulce natural (“vin doux naturel”) is a fantastic example Málaga’s traditional sweet wines – the favorite of Catherine II of Russia and Victorian ladies and the city’s main export until vineyards were wiped out by phylloxera at the end of the 19th Century. It is made with Muscat of Alexandria grapes, fermented and fortified to reach 15% (In Málaga, this style coexists with another type of non-fortified sweet wine confusingly named “vino naturalmente dulce” or “naturally sweet wine” made with sun-dried grapes. Due to the high sugar concentration, they don’t require fortification or mutage). Pale golden color. Delicate, perfumed with aromas of pineapple, flowers, cream pastries and peach yogurt. Feels quite light, balanced, not overwhelmingly sweet. Incredible value — 2 months ago

An interesting story. Sweet wine was all the rage back then it seems. d’Yquem very popular with the Russians pre communism as detailed in the excellent book “Stalin’s Cellar”. He took over the cellar from the Tzars.

Balaklava Loco Cimbali Barrique Rkatsiteli Chardonnay

Чиркнутая спичка, лизатные тона, выпечка, корочка пшеничного хлеба, белый персик. Во вкусе неожиданно полностью сухо, ваниль от бочки аккуратно легла. Репин крутой, жаль, что позволить его себе я могу только в таком варианте. — 6 months ago
