Description

“The 2017 Prima is a Moscatel Galego that comes in very dry, unoaked and at 13% alcohol. It’s always good to revisit some of these with a year in the bottle. It hasn’t thinned or wavered at all. Actually, it seems far more intense, far more tightly wound—downright powerful. It was so powerful, in fact, that I kept some over a couple of days just to see what would happen. It drank far better on the third day than on opening, when sometimes it actually seemed too intense. If you think of Moscatel as fruity, aromatic and easy, that’s not this. This is about the power, the structure, the finish. It’s superb, and it seems to be aging slowly. It’s a better food pairing this year than a standalone sipper. Word to the wise: Drink this lightly chilled and definitely not too cold. – 93 points, Wine Advocate – Mark Squires (August 2019)
