Description

Algarve orange and Douro Muscatel wine are perfect partners for persimmon, grown in Portugal, from scattered trees or in borders, a fruit with a juicy red-orange pulp with a bittersweet and astringent flavor. The walnuts from the region of Trás-os-Montes, with a very characteristic flavor, complete this connection, making it a jam with a unique flavor.

Excellent accompaniment to cheeses, “Leyden“ Cheese (PGI), “Provolone“ Cheese (PDO), “Murcia” Cheese (PDO), Azeitão Cheese (PDO) and Serra de Estrela Cheese (PDO).

Ideal for spreading sunflower seed cereal toast or macaron fillings.

Origin of raw materials

Origin of raw materials

Persimmon originates from China, although it is much more popular in Japan. In Portugal, two predominant varieties can be found: red and orange. The first one is the most common, presenting itself in its mature state as a very sweet and soft fruit, requiring great care to carry out its transport. The second variety is much tougher and does not require great care in handling. Its fruit, known as persimmon or Japanese apricot, contains a large amount of water and is low in calories, vitamins are part of its composition in addition to proteins, iron and calcium.

Douro Muscatel is made from the Muscatel Galego variety, from Vale do Douro production, which represents the largest patch of Muscatel vines in the Douro, it is aged for 18 months in French oak vats.
