Dark mahogany color with a iodine rim. Intense floral and citric aromas, showing Moscatel varietal at its best. Smooth and rich on the palate, reminiscent of dried fruits and spices. This wine has great length and sweetness, yet balanced by its natural acidity. Serve as a dessert wine. Perfect with citrus flavored and egg-based desserts or rich fruit cakes.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Moscatel Superior Emilin, produced from Moscatel grapes sourced from Las Cruces vineyard in Chipiona, basically the only place that still grows Moscatel grapes, which has very sandy soil. Legend is that there are some pre-phyloxera vines there... This wine is also quite dark for its age, and has the telltale Moscatel profile of candied orange, honeysuckle and sweet Muscat grapy notes. They do not dehydrate the grapes, they wait and harvest them very late, with some overripeness. With some time it surprises me because it ends up smelling of cola sweets. Drink 2013-2020.

Wine EnthusiastDark brown in color, with sweet aromas of candied fruit, brown sugar and mocha. The palate is lively and warm, with zesty yet baked flavors of toffee, caramel and apricot. A little fiery and driving on the finish, with a lasting spice note. Excellent for an aged, dark-style Moscatel.

Wine SpectatorThis avoids the slightly cloying edge found in most Moscatel Sherries, with bright green tea and ginger notes adding lift and freshness to the rum-soaked raisin, tiramisu and fig flavors. Drink now.
