What a steal this wine is. Great aromatic intensity and rather expansive on the palate with a very persistent finish. More green, herbal qualities to this vintage, but well-rounded with fragrant white flowers, piercing peaches,
grapefruit pith and a hint of salinity. Nervy, high-acid, herbal and rather complex. An ideal accompaniment to just about any fish, and with enough savory and vegetal component to match well with challenging pairings such as asparagus (which I tried, and it was excellent).

Loved this wine especially in the beginning, now what I consider a “special occasion wine”, cause wouldn’t be my go-to easy drink. Highly fragrant, dry finish. Probably most fragrant wine I’ve ever encountered

1) Can’t believe I have not reviewed this wine yet. 2) Appears to have gone through a label change, from the leaf one I know and look for.

Dry Moscatel from Andalucia - Sierra de Malaga.

Clear pale lemon.

Graham cracker (old vine) on the nose, orange flower, honey. Very pretty.

Dry, Crisp clean and lemony, with same graham cracker, orange flower, and honey, with lime in the finish. Med+ body, Med finish.. 14% ABV

Very good, drink now.
I don’t drink a lot of muscat wines, but this is one I keep an eye out for.

This was cool. High acid, dry Muscat of Alexandria from Malaga, Spain. Vines planted between 1915 and 1946. Head trained vines on a mountainside vineyard on inclines up to 70°—some of the steepest in Europe.

Rather simple on palate
