Malapipa Blanco 2017

When the nasty cold spell hits Madrid what is a girl to do but get in the car and head south. So here I am on the Mijas Costa checking out this lovely local wine. 

This a great example of how far Spanish wines have come. Back in the 70s a lot of table wines were made with the Moscatel grape. They were very rough wines. Sweet and acidic in equal measures. A serious overload.

It took me quite a while to retry this grape variety but I’m so glad I did. The new generation of winemakers have updated it for modern tastes, but it still packs a punch.

It is a lovely pale yellow with a heady scent of floral perfume. If grape vines grew blossom this is what it would smell like. It is a nice dry wine with a crisp finish just the right amount of acidity. The floral flavour lingers long enough to please the senses, but not to overwhelm. There’s a good dose of grapiness in there too.

Yum yum …… feeling content 😋😋
