Details

La Cosa Dessert Wine 375ml Half Bottle Alfredo Maestro, natural, funky, low sulphur, artisan, botrytised Spanish sweet white wine. It's rare to come across dessert wines made this naturally, so it's quite a treat when they do come along! This little Spanish minx is made from 100% Moscatel de Alejandria, affected by botrytis and hung out to dry. The grapes are then pressed and allowed to ferment in stainless steel until the yeasts have had enough. The colour is a murky, deep orange, and the wine is moreishly sweet with a core of rich, aromatic fruit. Cutting through that is a lovely backbone of acid which stops it from being cloying. Fantastic value for a dessert wine, especially one made with natural methods, but then Alfredo's wines have always been a labour of love. Approach with open mind and open heart.


Alfredo Maestro Tejero’s vineyards are located within the Ribera del Duero D.O., but Alfredo prefers not to participate in the D.O., so the wines are Vino de la Tierra de Castillo y León. His are completely natural wines, with no sulphur added in the vineyard or the winery. All vineyard treatments are natural, and many of them follow biodynamic practices. The Castrillo de Duero is 100% Tempranillo. Fermented in small stainless steel vats, and aged for 16 months in old French oak barrels. A rich Tempranillo that maintains its vibrancy, with great structure. The Almate is darkly coloured, opaque and mouth filling with lavender and toffee notes that stay from nose to finish while only tiny bit of reduction, maybe because of the low sulphur, shows on the nose, but quickly disappears to allow a sweet nose of roses, mineral and red berry fruits which lead to a dense palate of plum, cherry and berry compote.
