“This Moscatel Wine has flavors that are reminiscent of the Moscatels from Setubal. It’s a rich wine that shows a hint of the spirit element, but the ripe flavors of toffee and raisin ice cream are more prominent. Drink now.” 88 pts – Roger Voss 21112012

About the grapes:
Moscatel Roxo (roxo means purple in Portuguese)
The wines produced with this grape varietal present an elevated level of sweetness; they are very aromatic and persistent in flavor.
Its clusters are small and compact, with round, pinkish berries that have an extreme sweetness. This grape varietal, like the Moscatel de Setúbal, has a rich aromatic profile and contributes unequivocally to the aroma and flavor of the wine it produces.
Compared with other wines of the Moscatel grape variety, this fortified wine has a drier and more complex aroma but no less rich.
When tasting, it exceeds expectations created by the aroma palate, displaying a very fine highlight of spices, cherries and fig compote.
