El Carro 2016
Front and back


100% Muscat of Alexandria originating from the Pago El Carro, in the La Mata Natural Park, a geologically specific area of land, originally coastal, whose high sand content enabled this vineyard to survive the phylloxera invasion.

A wine which emanates saline and honey notes, along with aromas of orange blossom, fennel, tar, white blossom, and hints of ageing notes. On the palate, revealing a refreshing chalky acidity, it is crisp, penetrating, elegant and mineral. Ideal for accompanying rice dishes, fish, seafood, pâté, cheeses...

NOTE: The Rafa Bernabé wines have been produced with minimum intervention, vinified with hardly any handling and in the most natural way possible, without the addition of sulphur and with yeasts from the actual vineyard, and they have not been clarified or filtered. Such a natural production process can result in the wine showing some cloudiness or sediment, and specifically in some vintages more than others. It is therefore advisable to keep the bottle in an upright position for several hours before serving.
