Away from the increasingly uniform center of Málaga, you can find a classic in Málaga; Meson Astorga, in the neighbourhood Cruz Humilladero, the area behind the bus and train station.
Meson Astorga has an impressive wine list with many wines from the province and the rest of Spain. It is a twenty-minute walk from the center of Malaga, but more than worth the detour. In addition to the large wine collection you will find many classic dishes, which are served in large tapas, media or raciones (whole or half portions).
Go especially for the the delicious classics. Such as butter-soft carrilladas (pork cheeks) in red wine, the bone-melting ‘rabo de toro’ or ‘chivo malagueno’ (goat).
From the impressive wine list the red wine Ramos Paul 2006 from Ronda is an excellent choice, a blend of Tempranillo (55%), Cabernet Sauvignon (25%), Syrah (10%) and Merlot. Velvety wine with soft tannins. Full of forest fruit, blackberries and cherries that stand upright after so many years. Barrel aging (18 months) in perfect balance with that. Hint of tobacco, chocolate and pepper. Elegant and complex, anything but heavy. This wine is one of the very best red wines produced in southern Spain.
