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.

2016 dow’s vintage port, douro
Dow’s Vintage Ports are only produced in years of exceptional quality and represent only a very small part of the total company’s production in that year. On average only two or three times every ten years are the weather conditions sufficiently good to allow for the making of Dow’s Vintage Port.

2019 vintage port, niepoort, douro valley
The 2019 Niepoort Vintage Port has a brilliant appearance with a dark purple rim and concentrated depth of colour. The aroma is fine and subdued with only a hint of primary dark fruits and some spice. The true potential and style of this wine really comes together on the palate with wonderful integration of dark fruits with a grainy tannic structure, pairing volume with amazing balance and elegance and an impressive finish. In conclusion, the primary fruit on the palate is appealing at this stage, but it’s the balanced tannic structure which indicates great ageing potential for the future.
