Bodegas Ochoa Moscatel Navarra Vino Dulce 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Bright golden yellow colour. Great aromatic complexity; powerful and fresh aromas, toasted hints, raisins of the Grano Menudo muscat variety. On the palate is silky, balanced and very fresh that favours its frutescent, which extends in a cheerful and long after-taste. Some hints of ripe grapes are appreciated, which increase the variety of aromas both on the nose and in the mouth. Best served at: Cold Gastronomy: Appetizers (foie), desserts with fruits, Cabrales cheese. Our Moscatel vineyard faces south on a hill in the Finca de Traibuenas, and this allows its small grapes to ripen extremely well, reaching exceptionally high sugar concentrations. Long skin maceration is followed by a very cool- temperature fermentation until we obtain the required balance between alcohol and residual sugar. The wine is then chilled to stop the fermentation. The result is a naturally sweet wine that retains the intense flavour of the Moscatel grape, and has a bright, refreshing acidity.

Very smooth desert wine that is best served chilled. Has hints of lychee flavor. Smooth finish.

Floral lychee nose. Clean, long finish- not overly-sweet. Love the low alcohol level (12%)

This exuberant white offers apricot, honey and vanilla flavors, with vivid notes of lemon meringue pie in a sweet but lively wine that's bright and balanced. Drink now.

Pure tangerine from the first whiff to the last lingering taste, this moscatel sounds only one note, but it's a pure one. The texture is creamy and lush, lifted by a delicate acidity. Sip chilled.

Vivd and fresh, this delightful white balances moderate sweetness with a lively acidity to showcase orange blossom, honey and sweet pear flavors. Drink now.
