O Produtor, tasting note published in July 14th 1905

Despite the long years of ageing this Moscatel still presents some of the most characteristic aromas of the grape variety such as orange and tangerine. It is also very marked by the aromas of honey, sultanas, dried figs and caramel that give it great complexity. In the taste the wine shows the typical sweetness of Moscatel of Favaios very well balanced by the characteristic acidity of the plateau.

Adega de Favaios

Favaios 1989 is the kind of wine that is only made in years when the grapes have shown exceptional quality. After a careful selection of the best grapes from Favaios they were macerated and fermented as they were traditionally done in the region. The alcoholic fermentation is very short, and soon after the rising of the must we proceed to the bleeding of most of the must and application of brandy. A small part of the must continues to ferment and macerate with the skins for a few more days and only later is this very aromatically rich must fortified. The first and second fortified must are then blended and stored in very old wooden casks and slowly aged, improving its bouquet over decades.

Adega Cooperativa de Favaios

The story of Favaios is lost in time. His name comes from “Flávius”, an ancient Roman settlement that belonged to the land of Panoias. And his development followed the Dynasties.
It is in this village since 1952, in the Douro Demarcated Region, that Adega Cooperativa de Favaios became one of the largest and most recognized in the country in particular for the unmistakable quality of its Aperitivo and Moscatel de Favaios.
Favaios is also synonymous with Moscatel, a fortified wine from the Douro region appreciated for its sweetness and aroma. The development of this town is greatly due to the wine, which has played an enormous role in the local economy and architecture”.
