Gutiérrez Colosía, 'Moscatel'
Moscatel wine is produced from the grape of the same name in either fresh form or sun-dried form until it develops an intense raisining of the fruit. In the latter case pressing produces an extraordinary concentration of sugars and a certain level of coloration. Now with musts made from fresh or sunned grapes, the fermentation is stopped with the addition of grape spirit.
Ageing is carried out exclusively oxidative in nature and causes progressive aromatic concentration and increasing complexity without losing the freshness and the typical fruity character of the grape. This wine is ideal for drinking on its own, and its structure allows opened bottles to be kept for months.
