Papargyriou Late Harvest Sweet 2014
Sweet | Korinthia | Peloponnese | 11.5% ABV | 500ml
A delicious well-made wine from overripe grapes. Very delicate and elegant aromas, with hints of chamomile, jasmine, apple pie, apricot jam and honey rendered by the muscat variety. Generous but controlled sweetness in a full mouth sense, that despite its roundness shows lasting aftertaste with substantial acidity, filled with the aromas of the nose.
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.
