Description

The Sobremesa Tonel, Mouchao Licoroso has aromas of deep black fruits, dark sweetness, dry fruits, combined with the freshness of mint and eucalyptus. On the palate it is complex, being  full and rich with intense, spicy notes to the warm cocoa, tobacco and black fruits.  Decadent, different and one to enjoy post dinner in good company.


This fortified wine has been produced at Mouchao since the winery was built in 1901.  The best Alicante Bouschet fruit is hand harvested and foot-trodden in traditional open Lagares. The crushed grapes are gently macerated prior to and throughout the fermentation process.  When the desired alcohol content is reached and once the aromatic and extractive objectives have been achieved, neutral spirit is added to halt the fermentation, thereby maintaining a certain level of sweetness whilst boosting the alcohol content to around 20% Vol. This fortified dessert wine is matured for a total of five years in an old 2.200 litre tonels.

Niepoort Tawny Dee Bt.JPG

Niepoortland Tawny Dee, Niepoort, Douro Valley

Douro Blend

The Niepoortland Tawny Dee sees around three and a half years in small barrels so is just starting to develop a brick red/tawny colour and has delicate nutty aromas and a hint of dried fruits on the nose. On the palate it is beautifully balanced with a youthful fruity, luscious character, which integrates well with a long spirity finish.

Rainwater Reserva, Barbeito, Madeira

Verdelho

This blend of 80% Tinta Negra and 20% Verdelho is aged in cask for 5 years naturally, without the addition of caramel and is designed to mimic the 'Rainwater Style' of Madeira. The origins of this style are ambiguous, (depending on who you speak to), but it is thought to derive from when the barrels were left outside and the wine inside took on a particular characteristic having been lashed by the Atlantic rains.  What we can be certain of is that this is a stunning style medium dry Madeira that has complex flavours of almonds, caramel, nuts and candied fruits.  The finish is long and balanced with terrific acidity.
