Nopera Vintage Sweet Muscat

A Samos speciality, ripe Muscat grapes are sun dried, then slowly fermented, leaving a sweet wine with plenty of alcohol to balance. The wine is then aged for 19 month in small French oak barrels. Deep golden colour, ripe hazelnuts and candied peel aromas and an intense fragrance that invades the palate with baked Muscat grapes, dried confit oranges and pain perdu. Despite its 8 years of age, the incredible acidity keeps this unctuous wine so fresh!
As low as £28.50

Type: Sweet White
Varietal Composition: Muscat 100%
Region: PDO Samos, Aegean
Vinification: The grapes are allowed to dry traditionally, under the greek sun, resulting in a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity. The wine is left to age for 19 months in french oak barrels, of medium and light toast.

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 procedures 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.
