Quinta dos Lopes Moscatel, Vinho Licoroso Algarve, DOC Lagos, Algarve Hand harvested Moscatel Galego Branco was naturally fermented on skins then, after a few days, pressed and fortified with brandy made from the estate’s own grapes! The wine was aged in used 2000 litre oak toneis until September 2006 (8 years) at ambient temperature (i.e. with no temperature control). A pretty nose and palate shows lifted spice, barley sugar, poires tapées, candied citrus and buttered toffee; rose Turkish Delight with a few days in bottle. That nutty spine and this wine’s surprising freshness give line, length and balance, keeping it sweetness wonderfully in check. Residual sugar 129g/litre. 19% abv. Read Muska review by Sarah Ahmed:
