Molino Real

Malaga

Telmo Rodriguez named these rarities “Mountain Wines” after the 17th century English expression for sweet moscatel wines from the Malaga region. The vineyards are dramatic and spectacular, situated in steep shale slopes where not even donkeys can climb.

Molino Real is made in the traditional method of “paseras”, whereby women pick the grapes and leave them to dry under the sun. For 10 to 15 days the “paseras” clean and turn the bunches, removing the poor grapes. Later, vertical presses formerly used to press olive oil are used, and the first musts of the pressing are fermented in casks for about 2 months. Aging is in wooden casks. Remarkably, in order to get a 500ml bottle, more than 9 pounds of grapes are needed.
