 MR Mountain Wine 2019

Background

MR 2019  is a wine that rescues the historic natural sweet wines from Malaga, called Mountain Wines, which were produced in the Axarquía region of Malaga with the same grape, the Muscat of Alexandria. MR 2019 is a wine made with the limited must that is obtained by pressing the dried raisins from the old Cómpeta vineyards, located on stony soils with a steep slope, at an altitude of 550 meters above sea level. All this results in a wine to enjoy, with great personality.

The oenologist Telmo Rodríguez is a good connoisseur of world wines. After breaking away from the family winery in his youth, studying and graduating in Bordeaux, he founded in 1994, together with his friend and partner, Pablo Eguzkiza, the Compañía de Vinos Telmo Rodríguez winery. The winery produces wines from indigenous varieties in different original areas of the Iberian Peninsula: Rioja, Rueda, Cigales, Toro, Ribera del Duero, Castilla y León and Málaga, among others. But all the projects have the common denominator of focusing on the recovery of forgotten vineyards. In Cómpeta, Málaga, the muscatel grape.

Telmo Rodríguez makes this wine with a type of traditional reasoned viticulture, in which two harvests are carried out, always manually and in small boxes. One is made from the vineyard to the farmer and the second, from the farmer to the winery. Once the must is collected from these grapes, they go into small stainless steel tanks with native yeasts where spontaneous fermentation takes place. Aging takes place in stainless steel tanks for 10 months. All these characteristics make MR one of Telmo Rodríguez's great muscatels, offering us the youngest and freshest face of the varietal.
