Quinta do Portal Moscatel
Please view wine facts for the current vintage below as the vintage on the image may vary.
This is a delicious and attractive wine. It has exuberant, fresh floral and fruity aromas with citric notes, reminding orange blossom, orange peel and roses.
In the mouth it reveals a strong, fresh minerality and the same exuberance we found on the nose in a lively, fresh and elegant style.
Ideal for pacific rim cuisine, seafood and salads (try with asparagus).

In the high plains next to the Pinhão valley, are the vineyards of the famous Moscatel Galego (Muscat à Petits Grains). This is a natural birthplace for this grape.
At around 600 meters, the cooler conditions benefit largely a slower and balanced maturation and help maintain the freshness of the grapes.
