(2017) A lightly fortified wine in the style of a French Vin Doux Naturel, this is made with the Moscatel (Muscat) grape and is an amber-coloured dessert wine. The florals of the Moscatel are all there, with a bright and vivacious tangerine fruitiness, some hints of caramel and honey. In the mouth it is rich and full-bodied, with nutty and honey notes, but that bright orange/tangerine character gives it plenty of cut and spark, making it a great partner for creamy chocolate desserts. Quite widely available too, and comes in a 50cl bottle.
(2015) A luscious, amber-coloured dessert wine from Torres, lightly fortified in the style of a Muscat de Beaumes de Venise perhaps, but a little darker, more marmaladey and raisined. The aromas have Muscat's floral lift, but the palate has the burnished richness that says bring on the sticky toffee pudding or chocolate desserts.
