2013 Phyllas, 750mlSamos Cooperative
The muscat wine “SAMOS”, with a guaranteed appelation of origin, is produced from the grapes bearing the same name, the famous Samos Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, cultivated on the slopes of Mount Ambelos, on the traditional island tiered terraces (“pezoules”) up to an altitude of 900 meters with every hectare carefully controlled for a low yield. The aromas of the Samos muscat wines are both rich and unique. The notes that prevail are fruity and floral, reminiscent of fresh grapes, orange blossoms and rose petals. Of course, wines made of muscat grapes always smell of ...muscat, since this variety, above all others, elevates to perfection the primary aromas of the grape. Muscat wines are, by definition, the perfect expression of fruit.
With its exceptionally clear, blond goldleaf color, Phyllàs, the offspring of organically cultivated vineyards, expresses itself with a domain of aromas where dried apricots and fruit preserves reign. Its elegant and harmonious mouth, with its sweet muscat notes resting atop is lovingly placed on an aromatic background of fruit and dried nuts.
