More information about Ombú Moscatel - Bracco Bosca
The Ombú Moscatel from Bracco Bosca from Canelones offers a bright, platinum yellow color in the wine glass. This Bracco Bosca white wine reveals all kinds of lemons, peaches and pears on the nose. As if that wasn't already impressive, the ageing in stainless steel adds further aromas such as nutmeg.

The Ombú Moscatel comes very close to this, as it was vinified with just 1.4 grams of residual sugar. This light white wine is balanced and complex on the palate. Thanks to the moderate fruit acidity, the Ombú Moscatel flatters the palate with a soft feel without lacking in juicy liveliness. On the finish, this wine from the Canelones wine-growing region finally delights with good length. There are again hints of peach and pear. Mineral notes from the clay-dominated soils are added in the finish.
Vinification of the Bracco Bosca Ombú Moscatel
This balanced white wine from Uruguay is made from the Moscatel grape variety. The grapes grow close to the sea in Canelones. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into clay soils. Due to the balancing influence of the nearby sea, the grapes ripen more slowly and develop more aromatic complexity. The berries for this white wine from Uruguay are harvested exclusively by hand once optimum ripeness has been ensured. After harvesting, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Vinification is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled.
