Tasting Notes

César Florido is located in Chipiona, a tiny city within the Jerez DO. The area is best known for Moscatel and Florido is one of two independent producers who work outside of the cooperative. In this classic Moscatel, from 15 - 50 year old vines, Arope( grape must reduced through cooking) is added after fermentation to add another layer of flavors. The result is a delicious mixture of dark figs, burnt caramel and raisins. Serve with mincemeat pie, dark fruit tarts, chocolate mousse or aged blue-veined cheeses. .
