Tasting Notes of the Mistela Vall de Xaló Moscatell Pumpkin
It is a straw yellow colored mistela with golden tones. It was attractive to the eye, bright, clean, and transparent.
It has a high aromatic intensity. The sweet and fresh scents of the mature Muscatel grape show clearly in a motionless glass. Aside from traces of honey, orange peel, and white flowers like orange blossom or jasmine. The scents intensify in a shaken glass, heightening the impression of sweetness and freshness characteristic of the Muscatel of Alexandria grape.
The mid palate is sweet, thick, and unctuous. With an acidity proportionate to the sweetness of the wine, it is not cloying and encourages you to drink more. It has a long finish that is quite pleasing on the palate.
Fantastic to take with sweet desserts, cheese boards, foie, or simply to enjoy alone. It is a traditional product of the Alicante land, with the unmistakable stamp of the Marina Alta.
