Moscatel Galego Curtimenta

A wine made of Moscatel Galego grapes planted in the vineyards of the Instituto Superior de Agronomia, University of Lisbon at Tapada da Ajuda, a neighborhood in the hills just above the winery. Manual harvest. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts, no additives before or during fermentation, just pure fruit! On-skin maceration for 3 weeks. Dense organic fruit aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit, lychee and pineapple, great acidity, a wine that accompanies delicious light meals, salads, sweet meats, fish, pasta dishes. Also an excellent aperitif wine.

“Der Wein ist spontan vergoren, hat eine schöne Struktur und passt zu allen Gerichten, in denen sie Muskatblüte verwenden. Nachgerade ideal ist der Muscatel zu vegetarischen Dinners! Im Aromenspektrum zeigen sich besagte Muskatblüte, Pfeffer und Rose unterlegt mit zarter Nuss. Angesichts der aparten Noten dieses Weines ist er wahrhaft günstig.”, Martin Lambeck, Februar 2022

“Beautiful in expressive aroma with fragrant lychee, orange leaf, white flowers, white pepper. Very crispy and dry in the mouth, it has acidity on top and a very attractive vegetal bitterness that balances the creaminess. Enveloping and juicy, slightly saline at the end.”
