Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The pure Moscatel de Alejandría 2021 Pureza was produced with grapes from vines planted in 1943 in the Abargues property he has rented in the village of LLiber, and it fermented with skins for six days to avoid the extreme character from the skins. It's a delicate varietal, with perfume of rose petals, talcum powder and an herbal and citrus touch, fresh and vertical, and it will gain volume (and possibly diesel-like Riesling aromas) with time in bottle. It finishes with a salty and umami touch and a bitter twist. It's 12.5% alcohol and has a pH of 3.2, which talks about very good freshness. 6,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2022.
Between 6ºC and 8ºC
Alcoholic fermentation and soaking of the wine with its skins and stems in clay jars for 60 days. Aged for 5 months on the lees.
