Our favorite Maître Sommelier Marin @marinvino continues with unique, rare and little-known wines of the world.
BODEGAS VICTORIA ORDOÑEZ
Type: white dry
Grape Variety: 100% Malaga Muscatel
Vintage Year: 2015
Appelation: D.O. (Denominaciones de Origen) Sierras de Malaga
"Looking for the differentiation, Victoria Ordóñez decides to include in their wines the variety native Pedro Ximénez of the Montes of Malaga, grape of the wine malagueños for excellence, and that only in Malaga is cultivated, and that, over the centuries XVII to XIX, gave origin and international fame to the wine of Malaga. The preparation of these wines, which were in the most dry, was abandoned after of the phylloxera until today. We are therefore facing a risky and innovative project due to the lack of references in this type of wines. The work of research was led to explore one area wine until then quite forgotten: the Montes of Malaga, which includes the municipalities of Málaga, Casabermeja and Colmenar." (regalwine.com)
"This wine's gardenia, honeysuckle and tropical fruit aromas are the hallmarks of Moscatel. 89 points." (winemag.com)
