Dimobe is located in the region of Montes de Malaga, Malaga Mountains. The winemaker Antonio Muñoz is following his father’s expertise whom started a family tradition of making sweet wines from Moscatel grapes. Grapes are picked fully ripe and then laid out in the sun on the esparto grass mats to dry in a process known as soleo. Most of the water content evaporates, leaving behind something resembling a soggy raisin that produces highly concentrated juice, rich in natural grape-sugar. Without adding any artificial additives, and minimum intervention in the winemaking process Antonio makes the Zumbral, which is matured in oak. Viña Axarquía Maestro, is gently fortified with a small quantity of alcohol, carefully added just before the must starts to ferment. Piamater, which is “dulce natural”, made from must with high sugar content and is not fortified. The top range are the outstanding Arcos de Moclinejo, 30+ years old soleras, dry and sweet.
