SEÑORíO DE ANDIÓN MOSCATEL
Type of wine
Moscatel Late Harvest
Moscatel grape (small grain muscat)
The grapes remain in the vine until they achieve their over-ripening. Harvesting is performed manually, in small crates when the grapes reach between 23 and 25o BE, which endows then with the required degree of alcohol and sweetness in the fermentation process, without any other addictions. The mean yield of wine making is very low, around 1,250kg per hectare.
The naturally obtained racked must with finer less is transferred to new french oak barrels for alcoholic fermentation to take place. In the first few months, several battonages are carried out.
The barrelled wine is racked and then remains in the barrel the period that our oenologists have judged as optimun to then proceed to its bottling and the start of the long life of this wine.
Intense, bright golden colour that treasures highly complex aromas of sugared dried fruit, caramel and honey. Rich, powerful and oily it reveals an extraordinary balance between alcochol, acidity and sugar. Optimum persistence and reminiscences of the Moscatel grape, a perfect assemblage with the Allier oak. All of the alcohol and sweetness is from the over ripened grape itself.
