Sedella Mediterranean Mountain Wine 2010 Sedella Mediterranean Mountain Wine 2010

I love the province of Malaga in Analucia. Away from the Costa-del-Sol, there's wonderful mountains and remote white hill top towns that pop up around every corner. This winery is located in Sedella, a small town with only 400 inhabitants, at an altitude of 750 metres in the Sierras de Malaga appellation. Sedella's limited production, use of indigenous varieties and location make this wine a true rarity.

VINEYARD
The 2.5 hectares of organic vineyards are located on steep (45°) slate slopes at 650 metres above sea level, near the small town of Sedella.

Many of the bush vines are over 100 years old. The grapes are harvested manually with the help of "draft animals" (donkeys), using Roman ploughs.

The Mediterranean Sea can be seen to the south from the vineyards and the often snow-capped peak of La Maroma mountain can been seen to the North. The altitude and proximity to the sea gives Sedella wonderful elegance and freshness.

GRAPE VARIETIES
80% Rome, 15% Garnacha Tinta, 3% Jaen Tinto, 2% Moscatel

VINIFICATION
Sedella is fermented in stainless steel tanks and then matured for 16-20 months in a mixture of 225 litre French oak barrels (two year old), cement and 1,050 litre French oak "eggs".

TASTING NOTE
The Sedella Mediterranean Mountain Wine 2010 is deep blue with violet hues and a developing nose of liquorice, dried plums and herbs that gives way to medium bodied fruit on the palate with fine, smooth tannins, crisp acidity and a lovely, lingering finish.
