  • These are sweet, fortified wines made with Moscatel--most often muscat of alexandria, but sometimes moscatel roxo.  Sweet aromatic and wood aged until bottling they take on a oxidized, rancio character the develops from a orange, raisiny, and floral notes to nutty toffee with age.  They can be labeled Moscatel de Setubal if 85% or more of Moscatel is used. Blending grapes included non-aromatic grapes of the region.
