2014 Ochoa Moscatel Vendimia Tardia Navarra (500ml)

SKU #1278602 90 points Vinous

 Light, bright yellow. Candied citrus fruits, poached pear, honey and ginger on the nose, with an intense floral overtone. Sweet and juicy in the mouth, offering lively white peach and tangerine fruit flavors complicated by a honeysuckle nuance. Finishes supple, spicy and sweet, with very good lingering spiciness. There are 238 g/l of residual sugar here but the wine is in no way heavy or treacly. (JR)  (1/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Lychee, orange blossom, vanilla and honeysuckle flavors mingle in this thick, sweet white, which has enough acidity for balance. The spicy finish brings you back for another sip. Drink now. (TM, Web-2016)

K&L Notes

What a joy to drink! This late harvest Moscatel leaps out of the glass with aromas of white peach, fruit cocktail and orange marmalade. Similar flavors on the palate here, with hints of jellied currants and jasmine as well, and a refreshing splash of acidity which keeps everything balanced, even taking into account the 250g/l residual sugar! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
