    Alicante sweet white wines…

    Ver mensaje de Paco Higón

    In Alicante we can found some interesting sweet white wines… mainly elaborated using ";moscatel de Alejandría";, a grape from the family of muscats. These nice sweet wines, with a quite interesting backbone of acidity and the opulent nose of Spanish Muscat are a very interesting option to try….

    Two examples:

    I don’t use to drink many sweet wines.

    Of course I do like them, but it is not the sweet flavour of anything something that thrills me. I don’t use to drink more than a glass of any sweet wine (I drink more in common still wines ;).
    Anyway the Moscatel of E. Mendoza is one I do really like. Really fresh, vivid, flowery and no trace of cloying (Disclaimer: More than 3 years since the last time I drank it).

    Regards,

    I too have tasted this wine, in November and liked it very nuch.

    However I have been exploring some of our local Moscatels and very much like the wine from Bodega Comeche in Villar del Arzobispo...actually I like a few of their wines and have a small barrel of the Rancio reserva in my bodega!

    I find their Moscatel Licor at 14% to be similarly fresh and fruity, honeyed but not cloying and excellent with summer fruit.

    We also find more than a glass is too much which is why we still have several bottles of moscatel from different parts hanging around..unopened. I like the option of buying by the ’bag in box’ for this wine as it stays fresh in the fridge for quite a while.

    Saludos

    In fact, the average level of moscatel (Godelleta, Cheste,…..an so on) is quite good… Cirstal•li and Moscatel de la Marina are –IMMO- slightly better. At home, a ¾ bottle of sweet and fortified lasts about one week and a half.… so I have a good level of consumption of this kind wines…

    Cheers!

    Surely a good judge of how good these are is whether you want a second glass? I find that if the wine is good, I do. And if you don’t, best not to bother with it. A bottle of Jarel never lasts long in my fridge.
