Casa Agrícola 'Pureza' Moscatel 2021


White wine with a red wine soul, it’s as far from potpourri Moscatel as one can get! The name?: PURITY!

With a heady jasmine scent, nuanced with menthol, the nose is skinsy, spicy, oily and layered. There’s dried rose petal, preserved lemon, cardamom-curry, fermented lime skin and a touch of the ‘choke’ of artichoke (serving suggestion!). The clay buzz of the anfora meets the brine buzz of the Mediterranean. Short of mid-weight but deeply textured, expansive, savoury-salty, skinsy, delicate and open.
