Jorge Ordonez & Co. 2017 Victoria #2 Unfortified Sweet Muscat, Spain - Half Bottle, Malaga Spain
This is an absolutely sensual wine with honeyed and exotic flavors with perfectly balanced acidity, keeping it fresh. It is unfortified and sweet, perfect for some desserts or even as dessert. Made from 100% Muscat of Alexandria grapes - one of the oldest Muscat clones - grown in the wine denominations of Malaga (DO Malaga) and Sierras de Malaga (DO Sierras de Malaga), in the southwest of Spain. All grapes are dry farmed on slate and quartz soils.
Grapes are late harvested with rigorous selection - only the best will do. They are then dried on mats by the warm sea breeze. Fermentation is in stainless steel with 8 months on the lees.
The wine is lush and round with aromas and flavors of honey, candied fruits, especially pineapple, apricots and orange marmalade. The wine texture is opulent with refreshing acidity balancing the sweetness. Pair with apricot desserts, creme brulees, apple crumbles or pies, or as dessert on its own.
