It’s International Sherry Week! In my glass tonight not a Sherry though, but a wine made from Sherry grapes: a dry white wine. Grape vatieties: Pedro Ximenez and Moscatel de Alexandria.
About the winery:
“We are a boutique winery nestled high up in the Malaga hills, in sight of the Mediterranean sea. Our 80 to 100-year-old vines enjoy the ideal natural circumstances: they flourish in the slate soils and benefit from the benign climate and the cooling salty sea breezes. With a combination of modern and traditional vinification techniques we produce a range of award-winning fresh and delicate wines.”
About the wine:
