(100% moscatel de Alejandria, with 250 g/l residual sugar): Vivid gold. Perfumed, exotic aromas of candied orange, pineapple, ginger and flowers, with a spicy overtone. Sweet, fat and velvety in the mouth, with flamboyant flavors of ripe pineapple, apricot nectar, honey and candied fig. A bright note of orange zest adds lift and cut to the very long, sweet, subtly smoky finish. I also had the chance to retaste the 2005 Esencia de Almachar, a remarkable wine that offers a crazy blend of weight and energy, with intense spice and floral character and a finish that seems never to end. I suspect that it will be drinking well long after I'm gone.
