2008 Samos Vin Doux Muscat

SKU #1052510

The Samos Cooperative is one of Greece's original co-ops, and is one of the top producers of the island's famous Muscat. Samos boasts an extremely steep terrain, which means many of the vineyards here, especially those at high elevation, are planted on pezoules, or terraces. The trouble this provides in terms of necessitating hand harvesting is more than made up for by the wine's quality and immensely pleasurable taste. This dessert wine is fortified to 15% alc. It offers the unctuous, exotic flavors typically associated with the grape, along with soft acidity and a nutty, rich finish. Ideal when served just before coffee, accompanied by hard cookies or just on its own. According to Wine Enthusiast: "Refreshing, sultry aromas of honey, lemon and rich spice lead this sweet Muscat from Samos. On the palate, unfolding layers of honey, nuts and citrus are kept aloft by a touch of acidity. A pretty, approachable sip with an exotic flair." (04/10)
