This collaboration with José Maria da Fonseca, was one of the last missing links in The Portugal Collection. We had been big fans of the Moscatel sweet wines produced by this family business established since 1849 for many years and when the opportunity to work together was finally offered, the deal was quickly concluded.

The family owns a cellar richly stocked with very old Moscatel barrels. These guarantee constant quality to the Alambre range, bottled with 10, 20, 30 and 40 year old Moscatel (where the youngest wine in the blend has at least the indicated maturing age). In addition, Domingos Soares Franco, the company's passionate winemaker and co-manager, regularly markets blends of these very old wines. 

The nose offers aromas of orange peel, apricot, honey, nuts and fennel. The palate is toasty and fruity with a beautiful finish.
