Mountain Blanco Sierras de Malaga, 2012



Grape Varieties: Moscatel

“The 2012 Mountain Blanco is pure Moscatel from vineyards on slate slopes at altitudes ranging from 550 to 1,000 meters, fermented in stainless-steel tanks with indigenous yeasts where it matured for nine months. 2012 was a warm and dry vintage–quite a short crop. The nose is quite Moscatel but at the same time it has the telltale bay leaf, balsamic notes of the Molino Real. This is a versatile wine for the table.”
