A small quality focussed Bodegas situated in Chipiona , a small coastal town close to Sanlucar de Barrameda. Unlike many other sherry houses Cesar Florido own all of their own vineyards (21 hectares in total). Chipiona is best known for the production of Moscatel.
The NV Moscatel Dorado is produced from 15-year-old Moscatel grapes grown on sandy soils. The grapes are picked very ripe, the must starts fermenting and then fortified to 17.5% alcohol, and the wine spends two years in chestnut barrels. It has 215 grams of residual sugar. It is a young Muscat of golden color and a clean fruity nose of orange blossom, honeysuckle, mint and fresh Muscat grape notes with a liqueur touch. The palate is sweet, without perceivable acidity and a pleasant bitter finish. Drink it fresh with fruit desserts. This is superb value for money. Best served chilled!
