Bentomiz is a new venture in Spain’s Malaga region, started by a Dutch couple Andre Both and Clara Verheij in 2003 (their website is here). This is a region that is undergoing something of a revival – another notable new Malaga is the one made by Jorge Ordonez (which I have blogged on here). I really liked this nicely packaged sweet wine, sealed with a Vino-Lok glass stopper. In the UK, it’s available from Indigo Wine, although I couldn’t find it on their website.
Bodegas Bentomiz Ariyanas Dulce 2007 Málaga, Spain
13% alcohol. A naturally sweet white from Moscatel of Alexandria. Sweet, spicy and warm. Grapey and bold with lovely pure honeydew melon and sweet grape fruit character, finishing spicy. Luscious and richly textured with nice fresh acidity. Great balance here. 92/100
