Winemaking:
Setúbal Moscatel is a dessert wine produced in Portugal on the Setúbal Peninsula,a region south of Lisbon which was recognised as a D.O.C. in 1907. Some years ago, Jose Maria da Fonseca decided to brand its Moscatel as Alambre. Alambre was the name of the estate where José Maria da Fonseca first planted vines of the Moscatel grape variety, and also refers to wine’s amber colour. The Setúbal Península has unique conditions to produce fortified wines from the Moscatel grape. The climate is influenced by the Tagus and Sado Rivers and the Serra da Arrábida hill range. It has Mediterranean characteristics with hot, dry days and humid nights at the end of Summer. Winters are cold but not too rainy. VINIFICATION After the grapes are delivered to the winery the alcohol is analysed in order for the brandy to be added at the ideal moment. AGEING Used oak barrels. The age of 30 years blend varies between 30 to 40 years.

18 points - Alambre 30 years Muscat

Enormous aromatic presence, very complex, imposing, centred on dried fruits, raisins and figs, but also honey, spices, tobacco. Creamy and glicerinado, with acidity to balance the sweetness, deep, endless.
