DO Sierras de Málaga
Wine has been part of Victoria Ordóñez’s life for as long as she can remember. Her father, José María Ordóñez, was a pioneer of the Spanish wine industry, distributing fine wines across the Province of Malaga since the ’50s. Although Victoria’s own professional career took off in a different direction – she studied to be a doctor and has a PhD in Medicine – in 2004 she decided to enter the wine business and founded this winery in 2015. Working with native varietals like Moscatel and Pedro Ximenez, she is leading the way in the research and identification of old, heritage vineyards in Malaga.
Jabega is a blend of 70% Pedro Ximenez and 30% Moscatel, coming from small plots of 40-80 year old vineyards. It has a delicate nose of white flowers and orange blossom. In the mouth It presents an acidity very integrated with the fruit, freshness, and at the same time, roundness from fermentation and aging in contact with the fine lees. Very lively, salty and crunchy. A very pleasant final touch of bitterness, reminds us of the presence of these autochthonous varieties.
Served cold it is ideal as an aperitif and to accompany fish, oysters, shellfish, rice dishes, vegetables, white meats and Asian cuisine.
