Jose Maria Da Fonseca Moscatel De Setubal

Jose Maria Da Fonseca Moscatel De Setubal

Owned and managed by the same family for close to 200 years (one of the oldest producers of table wines and Setubal Moscatel in Portugal), the focus has always been on updating and looking ahead. A state-of-the-art winery – to rival the best anywhere in the world – results in wines that ally the accumulated experience of history with the most advanced winemaking technology.

Over and above all the resources used in producing its wines, it is the passion and commitment to the art of winemaking that best characterises the work of Jose Maria da Fonseca.

Vinification

Aged in used oak as to impart less characteristics of the oak, yet keeping its softening effects on the wine. No ageing in bottle is necessary due to its natural occurring oxidation, meaning this wine will (if kept properly) last many months after opening, with no change in profile.

Tasting Notes

In the glass you can really see the beautiful colour of this amber nectar, with citrus, orange peel and ripe apricots on the nose. Followed on the palate by cinnamon, hints of dried fruit, a smooth roasted hazelnut, with a surprisingly persistent finish.

Great as an aperitif serve at a temperature of 10C with fruit, ice-cream or sorbet; as a dessert wine serve with apple crumble, Sicilian lemon tart and any dessert containing honey or almond.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
