Other Info:
J. P. Vinhos is a member of the Bacalhoa Wines of Portugal group which was founded in 1922 when the company started the production of wines with grapes from the region of Palmela. The group has wineries in Bacalhôa’s most important regions: Alentejo, Setúbal Peninsula (Azeitão), Lisbon, Bairrada, Dao and Douro. With a total capacity of 20 million litres, 15,000 oak barrels and approximately 1,000 hectares of wine-producing vines, Bacalhôa Wines continues to invest in innovation, working towards the creation of wines which will offer unique and interesting experiences, all of a consistently high quality.

Produced entirely from the Muscatel grape and after a short fermentation period selected vinic 'aguardente' (firewater) is added. Followed by a period of post-fermentation maceration of the skins with the wine during the winter months after the harvest. Finally the wine is aged for a minimum of 3 years in oak casks. The length and nature of the ageing process produces a topaz-coloured generous wine with intense aromas of muscatel orange blossom tea and raisins possessing a smooth sweet and fresh taste. To be drunk chilled as an aperitif or as a dessert wine.

'Perfumed and very aromatic with an elegant and fresh nose of orange peel, spice, nuts and raisins. The bitter marmalade and burnt sugar twist on the palate is really delicious. For this price bracket it's fabulous. Knockout wine that hardly wants for anything.' - Decanter Magazine, 2016
