Vistamar Late Harvest Moscatel Wine Review

I was kindly sent a bottle of Vistamar Late Harvest Moscatel wine to review.

Vistamar Late Harvest Moscatel Wine Review. Earlier this week I was sent a bottle of  Vistamar Late Harvest Moscatel wine to try out and review.

The Husband and I love to have a glass of wine or 2, especially over the weekends with a little food at tea time.

We always go for dry wines that are suitable to go with savoury foods and I was very interested in trying a dessert wine out for a change.

After all, I love my sweet treats.

I have such a sweet tooth and never really thought of trying sweet wine.

This sounded like a great idea to me.

The Vistamar Late Harvest Moscatel Wine:

Colour -White wine

Grape- Pink Moscatel

Origin- This dessert wine comes from Limarí valley in northern Chile, where the long ripening season produces wines with great fruit concentration.After harvesting, the grapes are partially sun-dried, reducing their water content and thus concentrating the sugars.

Taste- Straw yellow in colour, with golden highlights.

Aromas -White flowers, peach, apricots and quince carry through to a palate of more ripe stone fruits and dried fig flavours.

Enjoy- Match with sticky toffee pudding, sweet fruit cheesecake, or rich blue cheeses.

Style- Dessert wine

Closer- Natural cork

  • ABV- 12%
  • Price- £6.49
  • Size- Half bottle 375ml

This first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle and took a deep smell of the wine was how strong, sweet, fruity and lovely it smelt.

I poured the wine into my glass and swished it around to watch the droplets to see how much alcohol the wine had in it and to see how slowly they fell. (some tips I picked up earlier this year).

The wine reminded me of a pale sherry with the strong flavour and you can really taste and smell the fruit-Mango came to mind.

With just a small glass it warms you up nicely inside and out, leaving me with nice rosy cheeks.

It is perfectly matched with desserts and I tried a small glass with a mince pie.

I actually preferred my wine with some chopped mango when I had another glass later, better than with the cake earlier as for me it really brought out the flavours.

My husband still prefers dry wine as this was a little too sweet for him, as for me I really liked the wine and would definitely like to try some more.
