FILITAS y LUTITAS 2016
So you think you know Moscatel? Try Filitas y Lutitas 2016, Viñedos Verticales, DO Sierras de Málaga.
"The winery is named after the area’s dizzying slopes whereas the wine refers to its soil composition —phyllites (filitas) and shales (lutitas). The wine is a blend of 90% Moscatel (Muscat) de Alejandría fermented in a 150-year-old foudre that had previously contained brandy and 10% Pedro Ximénez fermented in Oloroso casks from Dimobe. Both are fermented separately and later blended in the big foudre where the final wine is aged for 10 months. Oxidative and with orange zest aromas, this white wine is complex and rich with mature notes but it is backed by bright acidity. 4,000 bottles filled in this vintage." (note by @spanishwinelover)
