    Product description

    Moschofilero, one of the finest and most interesting Greek white varieties, is cultivated mainly in the Peloponnese and most particularly in the region of Mantinia. Full of freshness and with great acidity, this noble and delicate reddish grape blends well with other varieties and is widely recognized for its intense aromatic flavor of rose petals and citrus flowers. A highly popular variety that produces wines with flowery bouquet and white flesh fruit in the mouth, Moschofilero is one of the four Greek varieties with a worldwide reputation.

    This gorgeous example of the grape variety, this gets a little bit more creamy texture due to aging on its lees for six months.   On the nose complex aromas of herbs, ripe dried fruit, such as papaya, mango and yuzu, and hints of green fruit. In the mouth the full body and crisp freshness dominate, supported by aromas of bergamot, citron and yuzu, with a very subtle sweet aftertaste.

    A perfect balance with fish and meat, as well as cold cuts and rich creamy cheeses. Enjoy it with veal, pork tenderloin, poultry, creamy risotto, pasta with vegetables or saffron, spaghetti carbonara, braised kid goat in lemon sauce and beef fricassee.
