Horácio Simões Moscatel Roxo Excellent Superior


Moscatel Roxo, is a dessert wine produced in the Setúbal Region demarcated since 1907. Casa Agrícola Horácio Simões knew at a good time to bet on this variety that was extinct in the region and produce this nectar.

Tasting Note: Topaz color with greenish streaks. Floral aroma, spices and evolution. Round flavor, very soft and fresh. Very long aftertaste.

Gastronomy: As an accompaniment to a good dessert served at a temperature of 18ºC.

Winemaking: The Moscatel Roxo “Excellent” results from an intense work over the past 10 years divided between the vineyard and the winery. The vineyard was monitored and pampered at all times so that yields did not exceed 2500 liters / ha and the grapes reached the winery in an ideal state of health and ripeness. At the winery, a "proper" winemaking was conceived for this product, different from what was usual in other companies in the region. It consists of an intense selection of clusters followed by a pre-fermentative maceration for 5 days, after which the fermentation is allowed to start very slowly homogeneously throughout the vat, reaching os of fermentation in 3 days, benefiting this wine with the best wine spirits available on the market selected by the company's technicians, followed by a post-fermentative maceration of 5 long months. The final stage is carried out in used French oak 225 liter barrels, where they will be concentrated for the next 10 years. The best barrels from the best years of the 2000s were selected for this wine.
