TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Xavier Santana Moscatel de Setúbal Muscat 2016 has a bright orange colour.

APPELLATION: Setubal

VINEYARD: The Xavier Santana vineyard is located in Península de Setúbal in the south of Portugal. In this territory, the climate is Mediterranean, with rainy winters and dry, hot summers. The area is mostly flat and sandy. However, there is also a mountain part. There, on the slopes, the soils are limestone and the Moscatel de Setúbal grapes grow. This vineyard is cool due to the place where it is situated and its nearness to the sea. The grapes are fortified and sweet.

GRAPES: Moscatel de Setúbal

AGEING: This white wine spends 18 months ageing in wooden vats.

PREPARATION: The wine was made using Moscatel de Setúbal, known internationally as Muscat of Alexandria grapes, it would be considered simply Setúbal if the blend consisted of less than 85 percent Muscat. The grapes pass through a light fermentation process with a brandy infusion.

PAIRING: Xavier Santana Moscatel de Setúbal Muscat 2016 has a rich flavour that perfectly matches with desserts, specially made on the fruit base. In hot summertime, it perfectly accentuates the favour of light appetizers.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 16-18ºC

ALCOHOL: 17%
