Características de Moscatel de la Marina

Moscatel de la Marina is a sweet wine from Alicante prepared by Enrique Mendoza. It is a single variety of Alexandria, with deep roots in the area of the Marina.

After harvesting, the stripping of the clusters is performed.

Subsequently, the wort of Moscatel de la Marina is macerated at a low temperature with the skins to achieve optimal aromatic extraction.

The wort undergoes an uncovering process, which consists of adding alcohol to the wine until fermentation stops, achieving the desired level of sugars.

After these processes, bleeding takes place in deposits without going through any kind of pressing, alcohol is then added to achieve the desired alcohol content.

Finally, Moscatel de la Marina is filtered and bottled as quickly as possible to get the maximum fruit flavour.

Enrique Mendoza began this wine project in the late '70s. Passion made him start this project and this passion is alive in the team today.

Alcohol: 15.0%
Serve at 6ºC

D.O. Alicante

Winery Enrique Mendoza

There is no doubt that the Monastrell grape variety has become a fashionable grape variety. This region is home to over half a dozen cooperatives, which have been at the forefront of a wine revolution, making wines that are respectful to the local culture the area, cultivating vines with care, selecting only the best fruit and producing wines that faithfully express character of the terroir. These wines are easy to identify, due to the fact the estate or vineyard from which they came from is usually printed on their label. Also, their authenticity and quality can be guaranteed by the DO Alicante, which not only certifies the farms, but also everything posted on the wines labeling.
