Kourtaki Muscat Samos 2008
omg, the fact that this is only 11.99 at my local shop makes this sweet wine all the more enticing to purchase and drink until i'm drowning in happiness. Lovely roasted honey on the nose with unctuous flower notes. i could drink this all day......Add winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Paired with roasted seasonal fruits in phyllo with honey and nuts, ouzo/yogurt cream (Whole Foods, Counter Culture: Greek Isles). Paired well with cream and honey, but the sweetness of the fruit did not balance well with the wine and gave the impression of increased acidity. On it's own, or with perhaps a tart or rich pairing it is marvelous. Would like to try with cheeses or crème brulée. Honey, nut, floral.
Food Pairings for Kourtaki Muscat Samos
<p>This bright amber wine offers a nose featuring honey aromas, accented by orange rind and lemon. The palate echoes the notes of the nose, incorporating them into a lingering finish. Recommended to serve on its own, or paired with desserts or fruit. Should be served chilled. </p>
