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:Single vintage fortified wine made from Moscatel - intense notes of marmalade, raisins, figs and nuts. Elegantly balanced acidity and a rich sweetness.
Long Tasting Note:This wine is made exclusively from Moscatel de Setubal grapes, from a single vintage, grown in the vineyards located on the calcareous rocky hills near Arrabida where the grapes are harvested when they achieve full ripeness. 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). The wine is aged, normally for 8 years, and then bottled. The resulting wine has a golden topaze colour, intense aroma and flavour of Moscatel; marmalade, raisins, figs and nuts, a full palate and excellent acidity to balance the sugar richness.
