Spanish Dessert Wines
- Silky Sweeties


Malaga wine country used to be known for its altar wines, and was not taken seriously in the modern wine world until the famed flying winemaker Telmo Rodriguez landed on the scene. His wine, Molino Real (the royal mill) is considered to be one of the greatest sweet wines in Spain at the moment, and is highly rated by the world’s wine critics as a wine of the century. Interestingly, the winemaking history in Malaga and the nearby mountains is one of the oldest in Europe. However, like many of the world’s great dessert wines, demand fell dramatically in the 20 th century. There is now a recent surge in interest in these sweeties, and Malaga wines are finding their place on the world stage, quite an achievement for a tiny region with only 16 wineries! The main wine villages of this beautiful appellation include Frigiliana and Velez. There are many red and white varietals grown, but the only ones used for dessert wines are the Pedro Ximenez and Moscatel.

Best Malaga dessert wines include:

Molino Real – 100% Moscatel. This wine is one of Spain’s most famous sweeties, made by the flying winemaker, Telmo Rodriguez, Golden color, extremely complex nose and delicious fruity palate.

Don Salvador Trasañejo Moscatel- 100% Moscatel de Alejandria. Made by the Lopez Hermanos winery, this Malaga Moscatel has oomph and is a sensual dessert wine, perfect for romantic dinners.
