Casta Diva Moscatel 2014

(D.O. Alicante)

Moscatel de Alejandria   100%

Casta Diva reflects producer Felipe Gutiérrez de la Vega’s love and passion for opera.

We have searched the length and breadth of Spain for a fine dessert wine and believe we have found one of the very finest. Felipe Gutiérrez de la Vega makes wine from his de facto organic 12 hectares of vineyard at his small winery in Parcent in the province of Alicante. Felipe’s Moscatel grapes are late picked, resulting in a very high residual sugar. Ageing in a variety of barrels (including some Hungarian and Caucasian) enhances this already complex, deep flavoured wine which is characterised by orange peel, honey, raisins and spices and great length. A fantastic dessert wine.
