This was the very first desert wine produced from Moscatel in the Rioja. This sweet white wine was crafted from Moscatel de Grano Menudo with a late harvest on the 15th of October for this year by the Castillo de Maetierra winery. The grapes were then personally selected by the winery. The fermentation process was completed at low temperatures with periodic interruptions timed to increase the sugar level of this wine. As a result this Melante dessert wine was naturally sweeten and produced. A flavorful dessert wine with great honey notes that pairs perfectly with sweet pastries but can also be drunk alone. This wine is also a great way to end a nice meal.

Additional Information

Appearance A bright and crisp straw-yellow colored with golden reflections.
Nose Crisp fruit aromatics (Ripe white fruits, orange peel) entwined with white floral aromatics. All of this wines aromatics display pleasant honey notes.
Palate Flavorful, dense, and very pleasant. This dessert wine from Melante del Valle de Sadacia presents a palate with a very good passage full of volume, density, and a marked fruit character. Honey is very present on the palate with dry fruits, well-balanced acidity, and a finish that is persistent and floral.
Our personal opinion This one is a real treat. This is a flavorful dessert wine that we love for its fruit forward character and honey.
