Moscatel de Alejandría (Moscatel de Málaga)
The variety Moscatel de Alejandría is grown in the sunstruck area of Axarquía (eastern part of Málaga), a mountainous region with impressive rugged hills on soils covere with decomposing shale. The climate is warm and dry.
The grapes are picked manually and kept in crates. The fruit is collected before the berries start drying on the vine to obtain aromatic musts with a suficient level of acidity which will give the wine its character and freshness. Only free-run must is used, obtained by means of a pneumatic press and submitted to a cold debourbage. The clean must will then ferment in stainless steel tanks equipped with temperature control. The ideal temperature for the fermentation process is about 17ºC.
Riping and aging:
Not riped in wooden barrels.
Alcoholic degree 13%. Reducing sugars less than 2 g/l.
Pale yellow with touches of green, brilliantly clear and very lively in the glass.
The wine’s nose is characterised by its olfactory intensity; its fragrances of pineapple, papaya, the scent of dried figs, cake and balsamic notes make it a complex and seductive wine.
The mouth feel offers a good quality and well-balanced acidity, suggestive from the start to the very end.
Lasting and qualitative aftertaste.
Ideal serving temperature between 8 and 12 ºC.
Drink it as an aperitive with tapas, snacks, etc. Also with fish and seafood.
