Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 20 March, 2019
This DO area geographically corresponds to the DO area of Malaga and thus, like this one, comprises almost 1,200 hectares of vineyards. The classification was only made in 2001 and includes red wines, rosé wines and white wines with an alcohol content of less than 15% vol. The red and rosé wines are mainly blended from the varieties Romé, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Tempranillo. Garnacha Tinta, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Petit Verdot are also permitted. The white wines are mainly produced from the varieties Pedro Ximénez, Moscatel de Málaga (Muscat d'Alexandrie), Moscatel Morisco (Muscat Blanc), Chardonnay, Macabeo and Sauvignon Blanc.

The second largest of the 17 autonomous regions in the south of Spain (Spanish: Andalucía), comprising eight provinces. It is bordered to the east by the region of Murcia, and to the north by the regions of Extremadura and La Mancha. It is the oldest wine region in Spain, as the Phoenicians founded the port city of Gadir (today's Cádiz) as early as 1,100 BC and exported wine. Even during the 700-year rule of the Moors until the end of the 15th century, wine continued to be produced here on a limited scale, but mainly sultanas. The Moors transformed the area into a large garden and it was called "paradise on earth"....

They brought with them the art of distillation, which was not used for alcoholic beverages, however, but for essential oils, as...

Synonym for the grape variety Graciano; see there.

There are two grape varieties with this name. Confusingly, both come from Spain and are of different colour. Nothing is known about a possible genetic relationship:

Romé red grape variety

This red grape variety originates from Spain. Synonyms are Romè de Motril, Romé Negro and Romé Tinto. Nothing is known about the ancestry (parentage) or a possible relationship to the white variety Romé. It was first mentioned in 1807 by the botanist Simon de Rojas Clemente y Rubio (1777-1827), who quoted an older description. There the variety is described as very similar to the Teinturier du Cher...

Synonym (Garnatxa Blanca, Garnatxa Gris, Garnatxa Negro, Garnatxa Pais, Garnatxa Peluda and Garnatxa Roja, also Garnaxa) for the various Garnacha varieties; see there.
