Fustanova Muscat


Muscatel from Alexandria

GENERAL INFORMATION
Type of wine: Dessert Wine
Appellation of Origin: Valencia
Grape varieties: 100% Moscatel de Alejandría
Alcohol content: 15%

To produce ‘Fusta Nova’, the best Alexandria Muscatel grapes are selected from established vines cultivated in the heart of the ‘Valencia Muscatel’ sub-region, the climate here governed by its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea. The grapes are picked by hand in the early hours of the morning using strict selection criteria to ensure that none of their natural properties are lost.

Wine-making process
The wine comes from the free-run juice, obtained with no mechanical pressing, after a short cold maceration to extract the highest aromatic expression from the grapes. The wine is then kept for three months in new French Allier oak casks where the fruity features of the wine combine with the wood.

Gastronomy

Recommended with foie, cakes, crepes suset and every kind of desserts.

Tasting Notes

The wine is of a pretty golden yellow colour and translucent appearance. Its bouquet reveals aromas of citrus fruits, sweet rich notes and impeccable toasted wood undertones. It has a pleasant assault, elegant touch and bombastic mid-palate, where acidity and sugars combine harmoniously.
