Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 90 Points- The NV Moscatel Dorado is produced from 15-year-old Moscatel grapes grown on sandy soils. The grapes are picked very ripe, the must starts fermenting and then fortified to 17.5% alcohol, and the wine spends two years in chestnut barrels. It has 215 grams of residual sugar. It is a young Muscat of golden color and a clean fruity nose of orange blossom, honeysuckle, mint and fresh Muscat grape notes with a liqueur touch. The palate is sweet, without perceivable acidity and a pleasant bitter finish. Drink it fresh with fruit desserts. This is superb value for money.
Vinification: Fermentation is stopped by the addition of neutral grape spirits, leaving quite a bit of the natural sugar. The wine is then aged in the solera system for one year.
