Moscatel Ambrosía is the only Moscatel produced by Bodegas Romate. It’s a relatively small solera with just five casks in the bottom row, so production is limited.
Bottled at around 15 years of age, this naturally sweet wine is a bit older than most other Moscatels produced in the region.
Ranging from chestnut to an intense mahogany in colour, it has a noticeable density and viscosity. The characteristic varietal notes of muscatel grapes stand out in the nose with the presence of the floral aromas of jasmine, orange blossom and honeysuckle in addition to citric notes of lime and grapefruit and other hints of sweetness. It has a restrained sweet palate with predominant varietal and floral notes leading to a slightly dry, bitter finish.
Production and Ageing
Moscatel wine is produced from the grape of the same name in either fresh form or sun-dried form until it develops into raisins. In the latter case the pressing produces an extraordinary concentration of sugars and a certain level of colouration. With musts made from fresh or dried grapes, the fermentation is stopped with the addition of wine alcohol.
Did You Know?
When Moscatel is made by drying the grapes in the sun (asoleo) a great concentration of sugars and aromas of raisins is produced. The resulting wine is known as “Moscatel de Pasas”.
Moscatel is the ideal partner for pastries and desserts which are not excessively sweet, such as those based on fruit and ice-cream.
