Dry Moscatel de Alejandria from an organic farmer in the Alicante region of southern Spain. Crisp, floral and citrus that is great with salad or lighter rice dishes or drank by itself.
From the mouth of the importer (Jose Pastor):
"Casta Diva Cosecha Dorada is comprised of 100% Moscatel de Alejandria from 30-50 year old bush vines grown at 200 meters altitude on chalky, iron-rich clay soils in the Xaló Valley, Marina Alta. The grapes are hand-harvested, lightly pressed and fermented with temperature control in steel vats, and then aged on the lees for 7 months in vat. The result is a light and aromatic wine, redolent of wild flowers and citrus, with a very dry, zippy, and saline palate. Lovely to pair with seafood paella or to drink on its own as an aperitif.
For nearly 40 years, Felipe Gutiérrez de la Vega and his wife Pilar have championed traditional winegrowing in the sun-soaked region of coastal Alicante. Inspired by the historical wine styles of their area and the artists and writers who enliven their cuvée labels and names, the family produces a diverse range of vinos mediterraneos from dry to sweet."
