Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The first sweet Moscatel was the 2014 Casta Diva Cosecha Miel, fermented with indigenous yeasts and fortified with alcohol to stop the fermentation so it could be bottled, with 160 grams of sugar and 13.5% alcohol. It was kept in oak barrels from America, France, Hungary and the Caucasus before it was bottled. This is so honeyed that the name has never made more sense (miel is the Spanish word for honey). You can notice a riper, warmer vintage; it's sweet, with moderate acidity, and with moderate alcohol to make it easier to drink. It develops aromas of candied orange peel with time in the glass. 20,000 bottles produced. There are three lots bottled at slightly different times.
Between 6ºC and 8ºC
Aged for 12 months in French, American and Hungarian oak foudres (large tuns).
Estimated transit time: 3-4 working days.
