Quinta do Portal Moscatel Moscatel Douro Reserva 1996-
Quinta do Portal Moscatel Reserva 1996 - In the creation of this exquisite dessert wine Quinta do Portal had in
consideration the unique characteristics that the barrel ageing offers to the Douro fortified wines.
The result is a wine with great complexity, but still very elegant, that developed a range of noble and
attractive aromas. With a beautiful pale amber colour, it has aromas of pear and green apples in a perfect
balance with some caramel and honey hints. Some almond notes enrich the aroma due to the ageing in wood.
The balance between the sugar and the acidity is excelent, leading us to fresh and citric sensations on one side and the complexity of wines that have aged in barrel on the other. The final is persistent, fresh and complex.
