K&L Notes

From the producer: "This special Moscatel de Setúbal was handled with extreme care during its production; the best batches were selected, resulting in a wine with deeper color, with high complexity and volume in the mouth, keeping the elegance and softness that are the essence of this product. Setúbal Moscatel is a dessert wine produced in Portugal in the Setubal Península to the south of Lisbon, which was recognized as a D.O.C. in 1907. The vineyards are planted mainly in limestone and sandy soil. The type of climate is Mediterranean. As elsewhere, the microclimate has great influence. Here, there is often night-time humidity and dew form the Tagus River Basin during the late ripening stage of the grapes. This humidity plays an important role, in terms of moisture content, since it seldom rains during the summer."
