Tasting Note

This Moscatel Roxo de Setúbal 10 years has a golden colour, intense and complex aroma and flavours of orange blossom and peal, dry apricots, marmalade, raisins, figs, nuts and earl grey tea hints. It shows a full palate and a good balance between sweetness, acidity, bitterness and all the aromas.

his wine is exclusively produced from grapes of the Moscatel Roxo variety, harvested from certified vineyards on the slopes of the Arrábida mountain range in the Demarcated Region of Setúbal. The grape harvest takes place in the vineyard Quinta dos Frades, where, in this "terroir," they consistently ripen early. The winemaking technique follows the tradition of Setúbal wines in the region, with a brief fermentation of the must in contact with the grape skins. Subsequently, selected grape brandy is added to halt fermentation and preserve the original sweetness of the grapes.
The wine is kept during winter in contact with the grape skins, followed by bleeding and pressing of the masses. It then undergoes ageing in 200-litre oak barrels, previously used for whisky, in a special warehouse with significant temperature variations. These ageing conditions result in a remarkable concentration and intensity of aromas and flavours, accentuating the unique personality of these generous wines.
