Meet this full-bodied Portuguese Muscat wine with amber color, from DO Setúbal where the grapes were grown on sandy soil which is full of water and on a Mediterranean climate.
Intense aromas of golden raisin, apricot, orange blossom with some oakiness on the nose, as well as honey, orange zest and some prunes on the palate, with a medium, hot, caramel finish.
Good, tartaric acidity and a pleasant light side to its sweetness. Well balanced between sweetness and freshness.
The grape is harvested in late August, in a very ripe state. Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures, then light pelicular maceration until March of the following year. Aged in French and American oak barrels.
Muscat wines of Adega de Pegões were voted the best in the world more times so far.
Drink as an aperitif or with all kinds of sweets and desserts. Serve on 14-16 C temperature.
Keep until a maximum of 30 years!
But you won’t keep it soo much time, right? Drink this delicious wine finishing a heavenly lunch with friends and family! Cheers!
