Quinta Nova Clã Muscat

Douro Moscatel (used also to give an aromatic lift to white Ports) is capable of making particularly interesting, complex sweet, fortified Moscatel wines. Moscatel do Douro must contain a minimum of 85% Moscatel, and at least 16.5% alcohol. These wines tend to have good, balancing acidity, floral, citrus aromas, and flavours of orange or tangerine peel, apricots and butterscotch, turning nuttier and more figgy and raisiny the longer they remain in wooden vat. Minimum time in wood is 18 months, but most stay a little longer, while some Moscatel do Douro is aged for 10 or 20 years, and occasional wines are bottled as ‘Colheita’, with a vintage named on the bottle.

Product details

Winemaking

Grapes are selected at the entrance of the winery. Total de-stemming and pressing. Skin maceration for 2 days with low temperature (8-9ºC); Fermentation for 3 to 4 days and fortification with selected spirit.

Tasting Notes

Firstly the perfume, then the intense and fancy flavour of lemon jam, zingy flavour and smooth texture. Linear structure and juicy character, that once in a while shows a delicate aroma of orange blossom and also the sweet aroma of very ripe apricot. Very good balance between acidity, sweetness and structure. Long length in mouth and very persistent.

Store and serve advices

Serve at a temperature of 8-10ºC.

Food Pairing

It can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or with white fruit pies.
