This is a sweeter style of moscatel that has a few layers of intrigue for added interest. Dried stone fruits, orange rind and toffee apples decorate the nose, whilst the palate is a bit sweet, rounded and creamy textured, with decent licks of honey, a fresh and cleansing line of acidity, and a poised, lush finish. Try it with some duck liver pate!
Although Moscatel de Grano Menudo was one of the area’s traditional varieties, there are very few vineyards remaining today. Our single-varietal wine comes from a small plot with deep soils that is located at 770 m elevation.
After a 40 hour refrigerated maceration, fermentation is allowed to commence at relatively cool temperatures. We press the must off the skins after an additional 30 hours and the wine is allowed 10 months ageing on the lees in 500L French oak barrels.
Inviting golden pale color. Varietal unmistakable, apple, orange fruits, apricots. Pleasant, sincere mouth, with good acidity, good persistence, honeyed, sticky, balanced sweetness.
