I love Muscat when it’s vinified dry. Love is not the proper word, more like melting cheese in a croque monsieur sandwich!!
This was a very interesting Spanish white tasted in the Noble Selection portfolio tasting.
Molino Real is the personal project of Telmo Rodriguez, the iconoclastic Spanish winemaker. Along with his partner Pablo, he revived the glory of the wines of the Mountains of Malaga. Most people think of Málaga as making only sweet wine but there is more to that.
This white has a striking nose reminiscent of menthol, white licorice with diverse floral touches, lime and dry fruit accents. It was round with a delicious acidity and a very perfumed finale. It is 100 % Muscat of Alexandria from bush vines in shallow stony soils. At the SAQ for $25 ( 14006121). Highly recommend buy if you want to try something original and quite different.
