I tasted two vintages of the dry Moscatel de Alejandría, starting with the 2015 Mountain Blanco, from a very warm year when they started harvesting very early, during the first half of August. They consider it a very good year for the dry wine, and it rained at the end of the vintage, which complicated the sun drying of the grapes used for the sweet wines. It's varietal and minty, with a fresh palate and a finish with the classical bitter twist. It's quite original, as it shows freshness and doesn't overwhelm with the aromas, as they try to control the ripeness of the grapes. 14.500 bottles produced.
