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.
Jorge Ordonez has a full project in the impressive slate slopes of Malaga where the Moscatel de Alejandria produces a range of wines from sparkling to dry, sweet and super sweet. This is one of the zones I need to visit in the future to bring you all some photos of those really unique vineyards. – Luis Gutierrez, WA
