Muscat based fortified sweet wine from the Isle of Samos - unique sweetness
This Vin Doux belongs to the Vins de Liqueurs category and it is the most popular wine from the Samos co-op. It is the No. 1 sweet wine in sales in Greece and it is exported worldwide. It has a light golden color and the nose is dominated by aromas of apricot jam and mature melon. A fruity taste with summer fruits in the foreground. Served at 8-10 ° C.
The Samian land, under the influence of the sun and the Aegean winds, nurtures the internationally recognized White Muscat (Muscat Blanc á Petits Grains) in the semi-mountainous and mountainous terraces of the island. This teroir makes Samos Vin Doux unique.
Tasting Note: Easy on the eyes with an attractive nose, it has a light golden color. The nose is dominated by aromas of apricot jam and mature melon expressing in a very fresh way the character of the Muscat grape, holding on to its primary aromas. The first contact with the mouth is explosive. A fruity taste with summer fruits in the foreground and with hints of butterscotch candy and flowers.
