Product details

Winemaking

It is made in the traditional way, under intense maceration with the skins to extract as much as possible from the characteristic  aromatic  components  of  this  grape  variety. This contact with the skins lasts for 3 or 4 days until fermentation has to be  stopped with  the  addition of wine spirit. This mixture of  partly fermented must and spirit is then aged for three years, during which time it gains harmony and complexity until the blend is produced that will be enjoyed by consumers.

Tasting Notes

It is clear and bright in appearance, with an attractive golden colour. Favaios is noted for the  typical aromas of the moscatel grape, which is very rich and aromatic. The aromas of the grape can be tasted, especially the floral notes, citrus fruits like orange, tangerine and lime,  along with honey and caramel. In the mout  it is quite sweet and velvety, recalling honey and fruit jams.

Store and serve advices

The bottles should be stored upright, because they have been closed with Bar Top stoppers,  in a dry, cool place, avoiding excessive direct sunlight. This wine does not need aging in t he  bottle so it is ready to drink right after bottling.

Once opened the wine retains its quality for about 1 month.

Food Pairing

Served on its own and chilled it is excellent with sweet desserts. A more refreshing  option, as an aperitif, is to serve it with ice and lemon. For people who prefer drinks that are less sweet, try Favaios and tonic.
