Vakakis Theorem White 2016
White | PDO Samos | Aegean Islands | 14% ABV | 750ml
This is a dry version of the Samos Muscat, with fine floral aromas, hints of incense and light fragrances of fresh yellow fruit such as melon, apricot and lychee.
The full noble palate, balanced and aromatic with good acidity and an aftertaste which brings to mind rose-flavoured marshmallows.
Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains is a white wine grape of Greek origin that is a member of the Muscat family of Vitis vinifera. Its name comes from its characteristic small berry size and tight clusters. It is known under a variety of local names such as Moscato Bianco, Muscat Blanc, Muscat Canelli, Muscat de Frontignan, Muscat de Lunel, Muscat d’Alsace, Muskateller, Moscatel de Grano Menudo, Moscatel rosé and Sárgamuskotály.
While technically a white grape, there are strains of Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains vines that produce berries that are pink or reddish-brown. The same vine could potentially produce berries of one colour one year and a different colour the next. Variants, where the differing grape colour is stable, are typically classified as separate grape varieties Muscat Rouge à Petit Grains for red skin colour and Muscat Rose à Petit Grains for pink skin colour.
