Mountain Blanco 2019
At higher elevations of Malaga’s Axarquia region, on steep slopes of poor schists around the village of Cómpeta, some “surviving” vineyards still form part of the landscape.This is the origin of Mountain Blanco, a truly artisanal wine and assemblage of micro-plots of old, gnarled Muscat vines. Mountain Blanco is quite unique, a dry white with a remarkable mouthfeel, showing complexity and great balance between freshness and ripeness.
