Caprichio de Goya
Moscatel de Grano Menudo
Previously being awarded best Muscat wine of the world, the amazingly intense flavours demonstrate why!
In 1856 a young Camilo Castilla founded a winery to produce sweet wines after his background in Bordeaux wine. After his studies in France he worked in Andalusia until he realized that his variety of Moscatel was best suited planted in Corella in the Navarra region, hence why he founded the winery there. The name of the wines is due to his love of Goya's paintings.
Using late harvest moscatel de grano menudo (also known as muscat blanc a petit grains) the wine is fermented and fortified sweet before being aged in handmade glass demijohn for three years and being left in all weather on the roof for maturation and evaporation. Following this the wine is further aged in old large wooden casks for 3 years (some dating back to 1856) and then small barrique for a further year!
Very complex and powerful, dried plums, figs and nuts with distinct mocha characters and a long length
