This wine is from Jalon, it is made a naturally as possible with native yeasts and does not spend any time in a barrel and it is not fermented on the lees.In the mouth, a fine and elegant wine, with a medium volume and long persistence with a pleasant bitter finish characteristic of Moscatel.

Moscatel de Alejandria D.O.Alicante and Moscatel de grano pequeño D.O Utiel Requena, both wines are produced entirely separately and then mixed together in 70% & 30% proportions. An interesting wine appealing more to the younger market.

DotzeCeps 2022 Moscatel Naranja “Brisat”. Moscatel de Alejandria 13.5% €9

A wine still in development, slightly sweet. In the very old fashioned orange style but served unfiltered which is what young people are now asking for.
