Product Description
Details

This Spanish sweet white wine is produced from grapes coming from a single, south-oriented estate, called Finca El Bosque.

Belonging to the Navarre DO, Ochoa Moscatel, this wine is entirely made from Moscatel de grano menudo (known in French as Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains).

Produced by Bodega Ochoa, the grapes were not harvested until they had reached a naturally overripe state. At that point, they were picked at night, brought to the cellar, destemmed and gently crushed.

After being fermented for several weeks, the process was cold-stopped to preserve a sufficient amount of natural sugar in the wine.

Prior to its bottling, Ochoa Moscatel 2016 was stabilized.

We suggest that you serve this sweet white wine from Navarra cool, not chilled.

Drink until 2022. Bear in mind that, because of the residual sugar, the colour and the taste of the wine may slightly vary over the next years.
