Moscatel Alejandría & Merseguera
Vintage: Characterized by the drought for another year, although the summer was milder than normal and the Spring rains resulted in a long ripening that produced grapes of the highest quality. Harvest at the beginning of September.
Vineyard: The Moscatel vineyards are situated between the Sierra de Salinas, Sierra de Umbria and Sierra de La Sima at an altitude of 600 to 750 metres above sea level. The grapes from this vine come from a total of 20 hectares planted between 1960 and 1970. All of them grown in the low system under natural conditions. Calcareous soil gives very low production.
Production: Indigenous varieties are picked at the beginning of September. At this time the grapes are mature and the musts very clean. Fermenting at a low temperature (16 degrees), to maintain the fruity tone of the grape, thus obtaining a very aromatic, pleasing wine
Analysis: Pale yellow colour with steely reflections. Floral aromas from the Mediterranean. In the nose we detect white flowers and stone fruit. In the mouth it is expressive and balanced.
Accompaniment: Perfect alone or with seafood, fish, pasta or salad. Ideal with Oriental cuisine and spicy food due to its high sugar level.
