Muscatel Wines

Moscatel (Muscat) grapes are turned into sweet, fortified wine in the Douro and, most famously, the Peninsula de Setúbal region.

 

Most fortified Moscatel is sold young and fruity, but with age it develops nuttier, figgy flavours that go brilliantly with English Christmas Pudding and mince pies, or at the end of the meal with nuts and preserved fruits.

Sweet, fortified Setúbal wines are labeled simply Setúbal, if they contain less than 85% of Moscatel, Moscatel de Setúbal or Moscatel Roxo (a rare and slightly different grape) if they have more.

 

When to drink & Food pairings :Sweet, fortified Moscatel’s flavours of orange, lemon, flowers and grapes are brilliant matches for many desserts and puddings – sweet dishes flavoured with citrus fruits, coffee, chocolate, hazelnut, almond, rice pudding, crème brûlée, crème caramel and all those moreish, super-sweet egg-and sugar concoctions the Portuguese make to perfection. Sweet, fortified Moscatel is also best choice for Pavlova, and other meringue-based desserts. .
