Mosto Verde Quebranta

Mosto Verde Quebranta bottle

70cl, 41.8% ABV

"Mosto Verde" is a very special type of pisco, made by distilling the semi-fermented "green" must. This gives the pisco enhanced aroma, more characteristic of the grape itself, and a richer texture that is smooth on the palate.
 
Made with Quebranta grapes, this pisco represents the peak aromatic essence of Peru's most widely grown pisco grape.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Delicate and fragrant with fresh cream, sweet white chocolate, thick caramel and almonds.

Palate

A continuation of the nose, but with more intensity – the cream and white chocolate mix is sweeter, but also with more depth. The almond note becomes richer, almost marzipan-like, and there is some almond skin bitterness and gentle woody spice.

Finish

Balanced and elegant, with the sweetness and bitterness from the palate slowly fading to a spicy and fruity end.

Comment

Richer than many piscos, the creamy and sweet centre of the spirit is carefully balanced against a nutty character that stops the combination becoming overpowering.
