Finca Antigua Moscatel 2018 'Sparks fly when you drink this with Stilton!'
From the highest part of La Mancha in Spain comes this tour-de-force sherry wine. Made from the Moscatel grape that grows in hot summer days and cool nights, after harvest the grapes are laid on mats in the sun where they dry naturally. They are turned twice a day and protected from the local - hungry and naughty - wild boar. After pressing and fermentation what remains is a stunning sherry. It has a near-miraculous balance of intense concentration and freshness. There's an orangey acidity and a powerful sweetness. It's like drinking the most beautiful fruit salad (that's been drenched in booze). This makes a wonderful accompaniment to a strong blue cheese like Stilton to those looking for a change from port. But it can also match a very sticky pud! 13% Alc. Cork. Half bottle.
