Molino Real "Mountain Blanco" '13

Sierras de Málaga

Molino Real "Mountain Blanco" '13

Each bottle of wine that you buy is a living, breathing thing. The wine rests in bottle, sometimes ready to be opened right away, and in many cases, needing more peaceful sleep before it is ready to show its best. This wine from Sierras de Málaga in Southern Spain was a stubborn child. When we first tasted it after its long journey, it was intensely floral, lacking fruit, and out of balance. We weren't the only people that thought so. Sadly, the wine didn't sell well. After a certain amount of time, it was time for the importer to reduce the price, and get it into the consumers hands. When we tasted this wine again, more than 3 years after we first tasted it, we were stunned. That child had blossomed, this wine exuded gorgeous and complex aromas, beautiful peach and citrus blossom and just a hint of white flowers on the nose. The palate has exploded, fruit has come back, acidity is balanced and the length is very long. Of course I shouldn't be so surprised given that this comes from one of Spain's best winemakers, it's most influential wine personalities, Telmo Rodríguez. Málaga has a long history dating back to the times of Greek viticulture. By the beginning of the 19th century, this area produced more than any other in Spain. Moscatel is the king grape in Málaga, mainly know for its exuberant sweet wines. This Dry Moscatel was made from grapes from high elevation vineyards. Fermented in stainless steel with natural yeast, and kept on its lees for 9 months.
