Samos Muscat Vin Doux 2007

Member Review by Faolan:

This was a wonderful bottle. Chill before drinking, but not too long. Upon opening the nose is filled with a strong aroma of honey and apricot (I don’t pick up florals very well yet). It has a beautiful golden color. It’s rather big for a white, slightly heavier than most. This was a high alcohol content at 15%. The first time I tried it I thought the content was a little too apparent, but after revisiting the bottle it was perfect. The flavor is rich with sweet honey and fruits. At first I thought it was a little too sweet, but the second time it was just right. This leads me to conclude that the bottle should be left to breathe for a little while before drinking. Very smooth with a long finish. The flavor of honey lingers for a fair few seconds after sipping and the effect is very nice.

    This nectar-y Greek dessert wine is full of apricot and yellow plum character on the nose and palate. With intriguing chalky, limestone minerality and a healthy dose of sweetness and alcohol, it's an ideal after dinner sipper
