Málaga Mountain Wines are a very nearly forgotten style, grown on very steep schist slopes at an altitude of 500-1000m. The Moscatel grapes (Muscat of Alexandria) are grown and harvested from incredibly old bush vines at optimum ripeness, without any rot. Once picked, the grapes are dried for one week on drying racks to become partially raisined, before being pressed to stainless tank for fermentation.

Other Reviews....
The sweet white 2020 MR comes from a warm, dry and early vintage marked by a heat wave at the end of July. They believe 2020 is a very good year for sweet wines. This has 13.5% alcohol and 143 grams of sugar. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats, where it matured for 10 months. It's perfumed, expressive and with the character of Molino Real, with less complexity, with the notes of bay leaf and condensed milk, balanced, rich, expressive and long, not too sweet. 10,598 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2021. Drink 2022 - 2027.
