Moscatel sherry is a special if very rare type of sherry, grown on poor sandy soils around the city of Jerez in Spain, this grape accounts for only 3% of total sherry production.
Moscatel is the sweetest sherry grape and type, drunk and enjoyed as a dessert wine. With a sugar content of almost 500 grams per liter of must remaining after the grapes are dried, this wine is pressed as raisins. Moscatel or in German Muskatel or Muskateller is considered one of the oldest grape species and variatal of the world.
On the palate, the wine is complex, sweet, floral and offers light citrus notes on the finish. Deep yellow to brownish notes in the glass, this sherry is also visually special.

By default, the drums are equipped with a used wooden or plastic bung. If you want a new silicone bung, you can order it under accessories (type standard - C16).
Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
