"More exotic, with an incredible flowery, exotic, peachy, lychee, and orange blossom scented profile, the 2016 Victoria #2 is incredible on the palate as well. It takes 25 pounds of grapes to make a single bottle of this beauty, which is thick, unctuous, and decadent, yet still glides across the palate. The purity is off the charts here. This is a gorgeous, gorgeous dessert wine. Like the No 1 Selección Especial, this cuvée is 100% Moscatel de Alejandría from the Málaga region." Jeb Dunnuck 3/1/2018
Honey, candied fruits, white flowers, and distinct minerality. Opulent mouth feel balanced out by bright acidity.
100% Muscat of Alexandria. One of the oldest clones of the Muscat family and one of the only remaining genetically unmodified vitis vinifera cultivars remaining in the world today. The seafaring Phoenicians transplanted this grape from Alexandria, Egypt to Málaga 3,000 years ago.
Traditional dry farmed viticulture. Organic Gobelet trained vines. Cultivated completely by hand, with minimal human intervention. The majority of the vines receive no treatments whatsoever. The vineyards are naturally fertilized by the region’s goats and mules.
Mountain vineyards planted without terraces at inclinations of up to 70%. Slate and white quartz soils.
Climate Mediterranean climate. Temperatures reach an average high of 86° F (30° C) in the summer and an average low of 46° F (8° C) in the winter. Rainfall is extremely scarce, only reaching a level of 400 mm per year. Harvest The harvest is very extreme and begins in September. Workers hand harvest the grapes from the mountainside vineyards that can reach 70% inclination. This inclination, combined with the slippery slate and quartz soils, make this a very dangerous and tedious process. Mules are used to carry the grapes up the mountainsides. The grapes are harvested and transported to the winery in small 10 kg boxes.
Winemaking- Late harvest followed by rigorous selection on a sorting table. The grapes
are dried on mats in the winery by the warm sea breeze. Fermentation in stainless steel by wild yeast.
Ageing 8 months sur lie in stainless steel.
Natural clarification in tank. 24,000 375 mL. bottles.

Skip the jelly beans and drink this to satisfy your sweet tooth - Ripe pineapple and orange zest on the nose pulls you in. Candied peaches, and mango's are front and center with fresh honey giving it its subtle sweetness. Elegant and refreshing, this would be a fantastic addition to any Easter basket!
