Casa Ermelinda Freitas Moscatel de Setúbal

In stock

Product Information

Moscatel de Setúbal is Portugal's answer to the French Muscat de Beaumes de Venise - a fortified sweet wine made from the Muscat of Alexandria.

Tasting Notes

A richly complex, golden-coloured wine, with aromas reminiscent of the honey and orange peel flavours traditional to this region. Full and sweet on the palate, with good acidity that confers a certain freshness. A persistent, prolonged finish.

How to Serve

Fantastic aperitif, excellent with sweetmeats, patisserie, mice pies and vanilla ice cream.

Accolades

"Moscatel de Setúbal is made by adding brandy and leaving it to mingle with the sweet Moscatel juice for a good number of months, the result is an amber coloured liquid that is full of caramelised nut lusciousness, candied orange, spiced pear, ginger and plump sultanas, yet the acidity is in check too. A great alternative sticky and a style that is all too often overlooked." The Wine Gang, March 2017
