Sivipa, Moscatel de Setubal, 2016
Style/ Colour White/ Fortified
Grape varieties 100% Moscatel de Setúbal
The producer SIVIPA (Sociedade Vinícola de Palmela), is the company name for all the wines made by the Cordoso family. Filipe is the head winemaker with vineyards owned and maintained by his siblings and cousins.
The vineyard/winemaking The considerable sweetness in this unoaked wine is achieved by adding grape spirit early in the fermentation process, resulting in a wine of 17% alcohol.
Tasting notes Wonderfully intense apricot and orange aromas and flavours (sweet marmalade). Sweet indulgence, balanced by just enough fresh acidity, this is a classic moscatel from Portugal.
Food Pairing Sip on its own or pair with fruity, citrus puddings. We also adore this with our leite creme (Portuguese crème brûlée).
Serving recommendations Wines with high levels of sugar and alcohol are best served around 10ºC. Remove from the fridge 30 minutes before serving. Once opened, keep in the fridge and drink within 3 months.
