Lamb with Moscatel Wine

Lamb with Moscatel Wine

Step 1 – Marinating the meat Ingredients:

Place 2 cloves of garlic and 2 bay leaves on the bottom of the pot and sprinkle with about 1/3 of the onion.

Set half of the lamb shoulder chops into the pot, making sure the layer is somewhat snug.

Season generously with salt, freshly cracked pepper, and half of the paprika.

Add a bit more garlic and bay leaves, and another 1/3 of the onion.

Place the remaining chops on top and season again with salt, pepper and the remaining paprika.

To finish, pour in Moscatel wine to cover, pushing the chops down into the liquid if needed.

Cover and let marinate for 4 to 5 hours.

Step 2 – Cooking To cook the dish, preheat your oven to 400º degrees Fahrenheit.

Remove two large pieces of zest from an orange and trim off any of the bitter, white pith.

Add the zest to the pot and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil.

Submerge the parsley into the liquid, cover the pot and place into the oven. Braise for at least 3 hours, until the meat is fork tender.

Once the lamb is cooked, you can serve it with the sauce as is.

This dish is excellent served with small roasted potatoes and vegetables.

Ingredients :

  • 1 large onion
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 6 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 6 lamb shoulder chops (1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 2 tsp Kosher salt

José Maria da Fonseca Wines

José Maria da Fonseca Wines

Innovation and tradition are the keywords defining the work of José Maria da Fonseca.

Owned and managed by the same family for close to 200 years, the focus has always been on updating and looking ahead, never on standing still to reflect back on former glories.

José Maria da Fonseca initiated the business in 1834, and his passion for winegrowing has been shared by the family ever since, all of whom strive to maintain the high standards set by the founder.

Shouldering the responsibility of  what it means to be the oldest producer of tall e wines and Setubal Moscatel in Portugal, José Maria da Fonseca follows the philosophy of permanent development, investing heavily in research and production methods, allying modern techniques with traditional know how.

With the Manor House in Vila Nogueira de Azeitao on the Setubal Peninsula, Jose Maria da Fonseca continued the investment to produce quality wines of worldwide renown and has made a decisive contribution to the recognition Portuguese wines now enjoy abroad.

The 700 hectares of vineyard and state-of-the-art winery – to rival the best anywhere in the world – result in wines that ally the accumulated experience of history with the most advanced winemaking technology.

Over and above all the resources used in producing its wines, it is the passionate commitment to the art of winemaking that best characterises the work of José Maria da Fonseca.

It is this passion, rousing emotions, that José Maria da Fonseca imparts to the consumer each time he drinks one of its wines.

Periquita, the most ancient table wine brand in Portugal celebrates this year 160 years of existence. Joining the traditional Periquita Red,Moscato, the White, Rose and the Reserva, Jose Maria da Fonseca recently launched a new member: the Periquita Superior, at the top of the family range.
