Samos Vin Doux Sweet Muscat 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Mark Squires (Wine Advocate): Samos has had a tradition of making sweet Muscats for centuries. Many of the French Muscat vines (as planted in Alsace, for instance) are said to originate from Samos cuttings. The traditional method of production is to add alcohol distilled from grapes near the end of fermentation. The winery says that it deviates from this practice for the Anthemis and Vin Doux bottlings by adding the alcohol directly to the freshly pressed must. This, the winery says, does not change the sugar or alcohol levels, but does produce somewhat different flavors than typical Muscats... (Dec 2008)
