Moscatel Dorado Playa Regla 17%, José Mellado Martín

Deep amber with coppery highlights towards a golden rim, legs.
Lots of gently tangy Moscatel fruit with notes of overripeness and (fairly brief) barrel ageing. There are slight hints of tea, quince jelly and of course, raisin, yet this doesn't detract from the freshness.
Soft sweet and smooth, still with that gentle tang and a little body too. Generous and easy going it doesn't cloy and has good length leaving a lingering Moscatel flavour. Needs to be chilled.
This is the entry level Moscatel from the other private bodega in Chipiona (there is also a cooperative). Easy going pleasure.
About 5 euros
