Dark mahogany color with a iodine rim. Intense floral and citric aromas, showing Moscatel varietal at its best. Smooth and rich on the palate, reminiscent of dried fruits and spices. This wine has great length and sweetness, yet balanced by its natural acidity. Serve as a dessert wine. Perfect with citrus flavored and egg-based desserts or rich fruit cakes.

International Wine CellarReddish-brown. Orange peel and dried fruit nose. Oranges, peaches, figs, dates and burnt sugar on the palate. Rich, complex and exotic. A great example of its type. 94 Points Gerry Dawes in IWC Issue 57 Nov/Dec '94 - Tanzer

Wine EnthusiastDark brown in color, with sweet aromas of candied fruit, brown sugar and mocha. The palate is lively and warm, with zesty yet baked flavors of toffee, caramel and apricot. A little fiery and driving on the finish, with a lasting spice note. Excellent for an aged, dark-style Moscatel.

Wine SpectatorThis avoids the slightly cloying edge found in most Moscatel Sherries, with bright green tea and ginger notes adding lift and freshness to the rum-soaked raisin, tiramisu and fig flavors. Drink now.
