Moscatel de Setúbal Venâncio da Costa Lima 2010

15.0 / 20
Producer: Venâncio da Costa Lima
Region: Setúbal
Country: Portugal

A young Moscatel from Setúbal, this has a nice orange color and a nose where orange skin mingles with sweeter, honey like notes.

Unctuous in the palate, showing a full body, marked by sweet, honeyed notes. It's a nicely made Moscatel, but I think it would benefit from a greater acidity, maybe some more citrus notes in the palate. Finishes long and sweet, in the same full, heavy approach.

Will work well as a digestive or side by side with egg-based desserts.
