Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An interesting sweet wine offering up cinnamon, nutmeg, anise and in a lightly perfumed package. Good acidity gives it some zest. A real treat at this prices. Enjoy with chocolate covered almonds or fruit cake. Excellent value. Tasted October 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
From the Setúbal D.O.C, Bacalhôa 2016 is a sweet, fortified dessert wine with ripe stone fruit flavours in its youth and darker, raisiny and dried fruit flavours as it ages. Setúbal Moscatel is a dessert wine produced in Portugal in the Setúbal Peninsula from mostly Muscat of Alexandria or Moscatel Roxo, with 30% of local varietals allowed in the blend. The peninsula was recognized as a D.O.C. in 1907. - Community Wine Reviews
