El Abuelo Oporto So this is literally the Grandfather Fondillion from PQ (El Abuelo means grandfather in Spanish). The solera for this wine was started in 1892 and even though it is a single barrel, it is managed in the same way that solera is. Only a small amount is drawn from the solera each year and a small amount of new wine replaces the drawn out wine. Only something like 350 bottles are drawn from the solera in this case.Intense aromas of molasses, old coffee, wooden furniture, dried fruit, walnuts and spice cake on the nose. There is a little thickness in the mouth, but the overwhelming sense is that of smoothness. There is a little sweetness, but you could never call this a dessert wine. In the mouth, it fairly much mirrors the nose with a slightly bitter, nutty finish. This just keeps going, I could taste it minutes after taking my last sip. It’s hard to give something like this a score, but its at least 95+ Pts. El Abuelo Moscato Unlike the rest of the wines, the Moscato is fermented only to a certain level and then a bit of alcohol is added. Its sweet flavor is due to the floral characteristics of this grape. And is usually use for desserts, like tiramisu or in Argentina layer some lady fingers whip creme pieces of chocolate some moscato and ummm delicious. Or serve by its self is great too. it is just pure heaven to drink.
