Description

Malaga #3 Seleccion Old Vines is made with a selection of muscat vineyards that are from 80 to more than 100 years old, within the municipality of Almachar. The harvest, which is manual, is carried out in the middle of August; after several manual selections, the bunches go through yet another selection before being pressed. Fermentation is carried out in French oak barrels. As is characteristic of this wine, its alcohol content is derived solely from the fermentation of the grapes; this is stopped by cooling once the desired level of alcohol is reached.

100% Muscat of Alexandria. The oldest variety in the Muscat family and one of the few remaining genetically unmodified vitis vinifera cultivars remaining in the world today. The Phoenicians transplanted this grape from Alexandria, Egypt to Málaga approximately 2,600 years ago.

94 points James Suckling

Sweet papaya, apricot, saffron and honeysuckle on the nose, with a very full, tacky and unctuous palate. While this is extremely sweet, the acidity still manages to keep the balance. Lush, but thankfully not cloying. Drink or hold.
