Following the same philosophy that led to the creation of our JP wine brand, we aimed to create a Moscatel from Setúbal, which ageing for at least 12 months, would result in a more accessible product for the consumer.
Moscatel de Setúbal and other fortified wines often carry a certain elite connotation or have a reputation that they should only be enjoyed on special occasions. Today, Bacalhôa Moscatel de Setúbal is widely consumed in the region and its style is young and fruity. It can be enjoyed under various circumstances, special occasions or just to end of a day's work.

Produced from 100% Moscatel de Setúbal soured mainly from the vines located in the Serra da Arrábida region. This location, protected from the warm winds in the South, provides for slow maturation resulting in grapes with good acidity and strong, fruitful aromas. 

Technical informations

Grapes: 100 % Moscatel de Setúbal 

Soil: clay limestone 

Vinification and ageing: after a short fermentation, interrupted for the addition of carefully selected wine spirits, the wine was placed in large stainless steel vats throughout the Winter for a post-fermentation maceration with the skins in contact with the wine. Finally, the wine spends one year in used oak barrels to develop complexity.
