A classic fortified wine from just south of Lisbon, this Moscatel de Setúbal is a beautifully smooth, nutty wine, with acidity and freshness along with sweetness. Surprisingly light, despite its 18% alcohol, its closest parallel is Madeira rather than Port. Imported by Commonwealth Wine & Spirits Inc.
