Producer Summary:Bacalhoa is our longest serving supplier, and after 30 years of partnership we still find ourselves bowled over by the quality of their wines. Awarded by a string of international competitions, their range of wines from both Alentejo and Setubal offer unbeatable value for money.
Short Tasting Note:A rich fortified wine abound with orange tree flower, raisins and a smooth, sweet yet fresh finish.
Long Tasting Note:After a short fermentation, selected wine brandy is added and the fortified wine macerates on skins until the end of the winter (5 to 6 months). It is then aged for a minimum three year period in small used oak barrels. Bacalhoa Moscatel de Setubal is a young wine in a rich style - light topaze colour, intense aroma of Moscatel, orange tree flower, tea and raisins, with a smooth, sweet and fresh palate.
