ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS!!!
The 2006 Victoria is a selection of the best vineyards over 50 years of age. A step up in sweetness, it has 258 g/l of residual sugar. The aromatics are more expressive with elements of honeysuckle, spring flowers, orange peel, and tropical fruits bordering on the exotic. Viscous and rich yet elegant, it has terrific concentration and length.

I directly imported this BEAUTY and am passing along the savings...WOW what an ELEGANT AND MOUTHWATERING dessert wine for such a bargain!
100% late-harvested moscatel. Bright yellow. Intensely perfumed, complex bouquet of pear, white peach, vanilla and flowers. Nervy and focused, with juicy pit fruit flavors underscored by tangy citrus zest. Becomes sweeter on the finish but retains verve, closing on a sweet orange note.
ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS: "The 2005 Victoria is produced from a higher altitude vineyard. It is made in the same manner but in this case the residual sugar is 225 g/l. There is a mineral element with fresher fruit and livelier acidity than its sibling. The flavors are an attractive amalgam of pineapple, mango, and kiwi. Both wines would make for an excellent aperitif or an accompaniment to fruit desserts." This is a wonderful collaborative effort between importer superstar Jorge Ordonez of Spain and world famous dessert winemaker Alois Kracher of Austria. The wines are made from Muscat (Moscatel in Spain) grapes and hand selected from old vine vineyards. For the Victoria Cuvee the grapes are chosen from the oldest vines in the vineyards resulting in the highest level of concentration. The individual bunches are carefully harvested and left to dry on racks in a special room at the winery. The wine possesses opulent notes of caramelized orange skins and honeysuckle. Cheers to Jorge and Alois for creating what are sure to become one of Spain's greatest dessert wines! **BEST PRICE IN THE COUNTRY** ONLY at The Wine Barn - The BEST Wines, The LOWEST Prices!
