Winemaker Notes

Vin Doux, a member of the prestigious Vins de Liqueurs family is the most popular Samos wine! Both its appearance and its aromas prove irresistible to wine lovers who appreciate its pale golden color and the tantalizing aromas of apricot jam, overripe melon and butterscotch candy. First mouth is an explosive experience, with an abundance of flavor revolving around muscat grapes expressed in pure freshness. Vin Doux is a wine that retains the primary muscat aroma to its fullest and beckons you to enjoy it in long relishing gulps

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is often one of my favorite value choices from Greece. It hits another homer this year, mingling richness, sweetness and acidity into a beautiful whole. Simply a pleasure to drink, this is very well priced and utterly delicious. I think these can age, although their character will change as they do, but it is really hard to resist right now. Drink now-2020.

A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exists, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. After centuries of adversity after Ottoman rule, the modern Greek wine industry took off in the late 20th century with an influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology.

The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is mostly moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue for Greek wine during the long, dry summers, sometimes necessitating irrigation.

Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival and refinement of many of these native Greek wine varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include full-bodied and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

While Muscat comes in a wide range of styles from dry to sweet, still to sparkling and even fortified, it's safe to say it is always alluringly aromatic and delightful. The two most important versions are the noble, Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, making wines of considerable quality and Muscat of Alexandria, thought to be a progeny of the former. Somm Secret—Pliny the Elder wrote in the 13th century of a sweet, perfumed grape variety so attractive to bees that he referred to it as uva apiana, or “grape of the bees.” Most likely, he was describing Muscat.
