The grape 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 covered with decomposing shale. The climate is warm and dry.
The grapes are picked manually and kept in crates. Immediately after the vintage, the grapes are laid out on drying mats to toast in the sun during about two weeks. Once the desired sugar concentration (22 Baume degree) is reached, the partially dried grapes are taken into the Bodega for its further grinding and crushing.
Maturing and aging:
During more than 5 years in American oak barrels.
Alcoholic degree 15%. Residual sugar 300g/l.
Mahogany with iodine notes. Very intense nose with dried fruit flavors, toasted coffee and black licorice. Sweet mouth although but not cloying, complex and velvety, and with an acidity in balance with the sugar contents. Very long-lasting.
