Granujales 2015 13%, Viña Granujales

Bright pale gold with light legs.
Very fresh and fairly delicate yet with a pronounced Moscatel aroma with hints of mandarine, tea, a hint of blossom and, well, grapiness. Moscatel is high in terpenes which make it so aromatic.
Dry, light and fresh with moderate acidity and full of the above aromas. Very easy and pleasant drinking which leaves a long clean tasty Moscatel finish.
This is the first commercial release and it is made from 100% Moscatel Grano Menudo or Morisco, a small berried and slightly more aromatic version of the grape, picked manually during the first week of August at the 1 hectare Granujales vineyard near Prado del Rey, Cádiz. It was bottled for Viña Granujales by Salvador Rivero Nuñez, proprietor of nearby Bodegas Rivero, famous for Pajarete and also table wine producers. New, smarter packaging has been designed for the next vintage. The word "granuja" means the under ripe grapes left on the vine after the harvest.
9.30, Licores Corredera
