94 Points - [Refers to 2007 vintage] - "Greenish-gold color. Intensely perfumed bouquet of ripe pineapple, honeydew, white peach and baking spices, with a spicy undercurrent. Extremely sweet but the luscious melon and pit fruit flavors are braced by crackling minerality, which adds focus and cut. As lithe and precise a late-harvest wine as I've ever tasted, offering excellent finishing clarity and sweet, nervy persistence." -Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

COMPOSITION: 100% Moscatel

TASTING NOTES:
[Refers to 2007 vintage] - 93 Points - "Orange peel, tea, chamomile, honey and spicy vanilla flavors mingle in this silky, sweet white. This is rich yet lively, with a long, spicy finish. -Wine Spectator

[Refers to 2007 vintage] - 92 Points - "The 2007 Victoria was produced with older vines. Medium gold-colored, it offers up candied tropical; fruits, butterscotch, and pineapple. Viscous, sweet, and intensely flavored, it can also be enjoyed over the next two years. -Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

PRODUCER'S NOTES:
Made by Jorge Ordonez, S.L. in the village of Almachar, high in the mountains above Malaga, ths dessert wine is the collaborative effort of Jorge Ordonez, his family and world famous Austrian winemaker Alois Kracher.

The vineyards for this were chosen because of their advanced age, unique red slate soils and perfect microclimate. Only the grapes from their very best vineyard are used for this cuvee and the winery feels that this best reflects their idea of the perfect Malaga wine.

It exhibits a harmony of fresh flavors from the Muscat grapes as well as the warmth of the sun that presides over the gnarled vines. The fresh fruit flavors, rich texture and long elegant finish lead the winery to believe this will be a very long lived wine.
