MR Mountain Wine, Málaga 2010 50cl

White Wine from Spain
Produced by Telmo Rodríguez from vineyards at 700m in the hills behind the bustling resort, this is world-class unfortified muscat, pale yellow in colour with a seductively heady bouquet, luscious, honeyed palate and a finish as fresh as a mountain stream. It has a very particular affinity with pear-based desserts. Drink now and next year.

Compania de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez

Telmo Rodriguez is one of Spain’s brightest winemaking talents whose skill is finding ancient well-placed vineyards and re-establishing them to produce high quality wines. Based in Logroño, he produces a diverse range of wines from Rioja as well as from other leading Spanish regions.

His top wine from the northeastern corner of Rioja Alta is Altos de Lanzaga - a wine of considerable concentration that remains elegantly structured with fine, ripe tannins and a smooth and powerful palate. In Ribera del Duero Rodriguez is behind the fresh-tasting, unoaked Gazur made from 100% tempranillo which relies on intense blackberry fruit and ripe, velvety tannins for its quality. Pegaso is another rich and flamboyant red from the same area. Both of these wines are marvellous examples of the region.
Rodriguez has interests in other up-and-coming areas including in Toro, an exciting region next to Ribera del Duero where the slightly lower altitude and sandy soils can produce opulently sweet grapes. The wines here, which include Dehesa Gago and Pago La Jara, are attractively-priced for the quality. Lesser-known areas have also caught Rodriguez’s eye of late including Valdeorras in Galicia where he makes the delightful Gaba do Xil Godello. This is certainly one star we expect will continue to shine as he looks for new and ever more challenging projects throughout his native country.

Spain Vintage 2010

For Rioja there was ample winter and spring rain, indeed unfavourable weather affected vines during the flowering period especially in the case of garnacha and higher altitude vineyards, though the lower yields as a consequence have often resulted in very good quality.

Ribera del Duero was exceptional. The growing season ran smoothly with no difficulties to speak of other than a little late rain, and a good crop of healthy ripe gapes at full maturity was harvested in ideal conditions. The wines will age well. Toro too enjoyed a long ripening period resulting in good phenolic maturity in the fruit to make for an exceptional vintage.

Navarra enjoyed good spring rainfall and warm, sunny conditions leading up to the harvest and quality is very good.

In Catalonia late summer rain and some hail took the edge off the vintage but it is nonetheless good with notable performers such as Priorat, which performed very well thanks to cool nights after hot early summer days and milder warmth in...

In Catalonia late summer rain and some hail took the edge off the vintage but it is nonetheless good with notable performers such as Priorat, which performed very well thanks to cool nights after hot early summer days and milder warmth in August. Late rain here was dried by northerly breezes.

In the south-east conditions were very good and 2010 is an excellent vintage in Jumilla, Yecla and Alicante. Catalunya also enjoyed and exceptional vintage with an extended ripening period allowing flavour development. La Mancha, in the centre of Spain, saw good spring rainfall and a steady growing season that saw the grapes ripen with freshness as well as concentrated fruit in a very good vintage.
