Nopera 'Epitome' Sweet Muscat

This flagship wine of the Nopera winery, it is a blend from specially selected barrels and aged wines coming from different terroirs, that are left to age in French oak barrels. Different vintages are combined in a solera system in order to increase the complexity and make a truly exceptional sweet white muscat. It is a dark amber colour, reflecting the extending ageing and has a seductive nose of prune, coffee and caramel. The palate is rich but fresh, showing off the full range of fruit, full of apricot, honey and cherry flavours. It is perfectly balanced and has a very long finish.

Varietal Composition: Muscat 100%
Region: PDO Samos, Aegean

Nopera Winery, Samos, Aegean Islands

Nopera’s story began in the middle of the nineteenth century, when the Nopera family left Malta for Samos. A few decades later, the family produced a high-quality, sweet Samian wine made from white Muscat, which they exported to Noilly Pratt of Marseilles, a company still renowned for its exceptional vermouth. Eventually, Nopera became the first private winery on the island. Now they own three vineyards, covering 4 hectares, across Samos. They preserve the unique taste and rich history of their wine by focusing on organic viticulture. Following mild vivification methods means the wines retain all the pure qualities that come from their indigenous variety. Nopera has combined tradition and innovation to produce the famous sweet Samos Muscat as well as a range of dry wines.
