Tasting Note

It presents a golden topaz color, intense aromas and flavors of orange blossom, citrus, bitter orange jam, raisins, figs and nuts, a full palate with an excellent balance between acidity and the richness of sugar. Involving these aromas and flavors you will find a smooth texture where the balance between sweet, sour and bitter tastes is perfect.

This wine is produced with 100% Moscatel de Setúbal grape. The vineyards are all within its denominated origin and in limestone soils and mainly located in the Arrábida mountain area on the North facing slopes. The grapes come from Serra da Ursa, a vineyard planted in 1980 that for its location in altitude, orientation, north-facing and age, produces Moscatel de Setúbal grapes with slow maturation, that is, not only rich in sugar but also rich in natural acidity and complete phenolic maturation. The winemaking technology used is more traditional, which undergoes a short fermentation in contact with the grape films, then stopped with the addition of wine brandy selected. The wine is macerated until the end of winter (5 to 6 months), achieving a total extraction of aromas and flavors. It’s then racked and its doughs pressed. It ages in small oak barrels, placed in special warehouses where there are large thermal amplitudes. These conditions aging causes a concentration and intensity of aromas and flavors, which further accentuates the personality unique to these fortified wines.
