Working on the winery’s traceability, we traced it back to a Moscatel from vintage 1980, which wasn’t sold and remained in a chestnut barrel in our old cellar in Valencia.
An oxidation process started (which still goes on nowadays), so that the wine was no longer fit for its traditional use. It stayed in the barrel, where Mistela from successive years was being added until it was completely filled in. The wine continued its development, and some years ago, when we were shutting down the cellar in Valencia, this oenological “jewel” was discovered.
