Union of Winemaking Cooperatives of Samos Muscat Samos Néctar 2001

Member Review by tommyvino:

Produced from 100% Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains which are sun-dried then pressed and vinified in stainless steel tanks then transferred to large oak barrels for 3 years of aging prior to being bottled. A pale amber color with powerful nose of ripe figs, dates, caramelized peaches, and candied orange zest. The equally powerful palate comes alive with peach marmalade, sun dried figs and dates, and a slight candied pecan on the finish. The wine is full-bodied, with fresh acidity, and a very long extravagant finish. This is an intensely flavored dessert wine with many secondary flavor components but it lacks a bit of acidity though still a wonderful wine. With only 830 cases of 375ml bottles made it is truly one of a kind and should make any lover of sweets very happy. 3/5
